LIGHT AND DARKNESS offer rich metaphors for our life in Christ. Light is God’s love that breaks through the darkness of cruelty and injustice. Light is Christ meeting us in the darkness of human poverty and need. Light is the glow we emit that illumines the road for all who walk near us. …
Lord, as nature lights our vision of you, may we light the vision of others. Amen
— J. Marshall Jenkins
