 As We Gather...Upon the chaos dark and rude-these words come from the hymn "Eternal Father, Strong to Save." They refer both to the "formless void" preceding creation and to the frightening power of a storm at sea. We may at times feel like our lives are lived amid chaos dark and rude: random violence, destructive storms, and dozens of daily demands pulling us in multiple directions. Today's Readings give us God's  assuring word of promise amid the chaos dark and rude. Following the chaos of the great flood, God  establishes His covenant with Noah and all creation never again to destroy the earth and all flesh with a flood, but to give life. The Epistle teaches us that since Christ dwells in our hearts through faith, we are rooted and grounded in His love amid the chaos dark and rude. And in the Gospel, Jesus treads the chaos dark and rude under His feet: walking on the water signaled that Jesus has the ultimate power over all the chaos that  threatens to overwhelm us. So today, amid the chaos dark and rude, Jesus, who got in the boat with the  disciples and caused the wind to cease, is with us through His Word calming our fears and guiding us  through it all.
