How many of us long to hear a voice of contentment – a voice that blankets us with gentleness and calm.
Today the world reels from violence due to a spirit of distrust, anger and fear. It is hard to hear that voice. It is hard to find the presence which is balm. Who meets us as we settle to sleep? Where do we go to find the calm and gentle presence of our great teacher and protector. The noise is so loud, the fear is so great.
Yet in the midst of this chaos, in the midst of danger and noise, God stands in the center – watching and holding out a hand to bring all toward safety and peace. May this outstretched hand be seen by those who rise from the rubble of hatred and violence.
