The Calm Within
By Rev Alan Mead
You are so needed right now, as gathering winds of fear and hunger for power blow the worlds victims of war and poverty as a leaf, driven by desperation and hope for a place to simply live. You have weathered storms and have a center within that remains calm as the storm rages and swirls around you. Your belief in the power of peace, in the restoration provided by reconciliation, your commitment to the goodness of life, your refusal to build walls of separation, your faith that sustains you, are needed now by a world that is hungry for hope and looks for direction, for a beacon to mark the dangerous shoals and guide to safe harbor.
