lighting up the darkness…


Candlelight atop tables… altars…
shine on faces… make them bright…

and the glory of the Lord shone around them…

a glory announcing the birth of Light… in a dark world…
In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
John 1:4 ESV
The wise men… magi… saw the star…
a light shining in the night skies…

For we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”

He was in the world, and the world was made through him,
yet the world did not know him.

But for those who do…

Light… an Advent word… a word of Christmas…

and for those dwelling in the region and shadow of death,
on them a light has dawned.”
