THE PEACEFUL ONE


In 1520 Ferdinand Magellan battled for an entire year to find a passage around South America. There, at the very tip of the continent, in its icy waters he encountered some of the worst weather anywhere on earth. Raging seas, towering icebergs and a mutinous crew plagued his efforts. When he finally made his way through those straits (which today bear his name: the Straits of Magellan), he entered into a great body of water that lay beyond, and as he and his men lifted their faces to heaven and gave thanks to God, he named the new ocean, "The Peaceful One--the Pacific Ocean."


Jesus is the Peaceful One.
