I love the story of Noah. (I have an entire blog about it!

It is not my intention to preach religion here.

However, I find Noah and his story to be a potent symbol that many people may relate to.

In the flood of violence and suffering and ignorance and injustice and confusion and . . . and . . . and . . Each of us has the opportunity to enter the Ark of Peace.

It's not a fancy ark. It's just ordinary. It's an ark we make with our own hands.

We can bring our families on this ark. We invite the animals and all the beauty of the world.

It won't be easy. Just because we are in the Ark doesn't mean that the storm stops -- it still continues to rage. But though it is small, it is still a refuge from the worst.

But in the end, as Noah's ark did, our Ark of Peace will find rest, comfort, peace, a land that can be shared, the bounties of the earth, and gratitude and sacrifice to God (as we understand Him).
