"And there were also with him other little ships"

In Mark (4:35-41) we read of an incident in the life of our Master, as he and his disciples were crossing the Sea of Galilee. They were in a small boat, so that when a great storm arose the ship was filled with water. "And there were also with him other little ships." Despite the alarming situation Jesus slept, but the disciples awakened him, saying, "Master, carest thou not that we perish?" And we are told that "he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still." The wind ceased, and there was a great calm, which the other little ships would also have experienced. The Master's knowledge of the allness of God and the nothingness of material manifestations changed the evidence, and harmony was restored.

This vivid narrative became even clearer to two men who were rowing in a Norwegian fiord when a great storm arose and it seemed doubtful that they could ever make land. Neither of them was at that time a Christian Scientist, but the writer has since become one, and as he now looks back on this experience he can appreciate the terror of the disciples and glimpse the wonderful poise of their Master in their distress.
