Adventures at sea, part 1

Good evening friends,
In yesterday's reading Paul advised the centurion and captain to stay where they were, even though it wasn't a good harbor to spend the winter in. Not surprisingly, they listened to the pilot and the owner of the ship instead of to Paul. We'll see what happens next in an exciting nautical adventure in two parts.

God bless,

Acts 27:13-20
13 When a moderate south wind began to blow, they thought they could achieve their purpose; so they weighed anchor and began to sail past Crete, close to the shore. 14But soon a violent wind, called the northeaster, rushed down from Crete. 15Since the ship was caught and could not be turned with its head to the wind, we gave way to it and were driven. 16By running under the lee of a small island called Cauda we were scarcely able to get the ship’s boat under control.
