Homily thoughts for August 10, 2014…God in Quiet & in Chaos

Many come to church with the hope of meeting God in the quite & peaceful atmosphere we expect a church to have. On the outside, we may look calm but on the inside many of us have worries & fears. So like Elijah who found God in the tiny whispering sound or like Jesus who sought God in the solitude of the mountain, we seek God in quiet. 

But the disciples, who knew the terror, chaos & power of the sea, found that Christ was with them there, reaching out his hand to save them. He alone has the power to calm the frightening sea.

God is found everywhere: in quiet and in chaos, in prayer and in the hectic days of our lives. When Christ puts out his hand to you, grab hold of it as he brings you in to safety.
