“In the beginning….God said: Let there be light; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good…”
God shines light into the darkness of creation, of our world, of our lives and hearts. God shines light to bring forth life, to reveal truth, and to illumine the path of righteousness and peace. And God sees that it is good.
In this beautiful Advent season, may God’s light shine anew in your heart. Through the worship and music of the season, may God’s light shine in your soul.
In fellowship, may God’s light shine in your home.
In opportunities for service and giving, may God’s light shine in your mind.
And, through us, may God’s light shine anew in our world.
My Christmas prayer for each of you is that you will find in this season a renewed sense of God’s love, and healing presence in your life, bringing light and joy to you and yours.
For in Christ is born the fullness of life, and that life is the light of all people. As John’s Gospel proclaims: “The light shines in the darkness and the darkness can never overcome it.”
May the blessings of Christ, the Light of the World, dawn brightly upon us all.
