Comfort in the Chaos by Aster Way – a Song of Hope for Our Time
Aster Way is a Christian worship music duo. Johan Glidden and Kenny James write, record, and produce music rooted in contemporary pop, acoustic, and folk music. Their songs stem from their own experiences with Christ and a look at the world through His eyes. Through Aster Way – the Way of the Star – they point their listeners away from the world’s turmoil and toward God.
Aster Way’s debut single, Comfort in the Chaos (lyrics and music by Johan Glidden) is a song born from Johan and Kenny’s experiences during the tumult of the past few months. Witnessing the hysteria on all sides, they have been continually drawn back to Christ’s promise of peace. As Jesus has told us, we will always have trouble in the world. But we need not fear. “Peace be with my brothers and my sisters And peace be in the hearts of all our leaders And peace – I see it in the eyes of Jesus Christ.”
