Solid ground in shaky times...
When everything seems to shaking, where do we stand? Where do we find solid ground to plant ourselves upon in the midst of all the world's and our personal tumult? In faith. In God. In community. These are pretty chaotic times for our world right now and the fact that we live in a media saturated age seems to make these alarms bells all the more shrill and scary. So: talk to God in prayer. Lean upon God in trust. Find God in our community, in all of us gathering together week after week, sometimes just to hold on to our God and to each other and to trust in this act that we do have a place to stand in the world. No matter what. Let us pray for our brothers and sisters in Japan, for a swift end to the war in Libya and for the peace of God which comes when we lean in and upon the Rock.
