calm-the-stormMary, outside a tomb, carrying ointments
and a storm of grief,
hears the voice that calmed the waters
in tones of comfort:
‘Be still and know that I am God’.
 
At an Emmaus home, over broken bread,
in a storm of confusion,
hear the voice that calmed the waters
in tones of understanding:
‘Be still and know that I am God’.
 
Thomas, alone in the crowded upper room,
filled with the raging storm of bewilderment
hears the voice that calmed the waters
in tones of inclusion:
‘Be still and know that I am God’.
 
Peter, at the lake-side, ragged and wretched
in the paralysing storm of guilt,
hears the voice that calmed the waters
in tones of reconciliation:
‘Be still and know that I am God’.
