Sunday, March 3, 4:30pm. What is light, and what does it do? Sunlight provides warmth and aids vision, both of which can improve mood. Our annual cycles of light and dark, warmth and cold, help us mark time. Light gives us color, shadow, perspective, and energy.
But what does light have to do with truth, hope, and justice? Can light uncover personal pain and lead us to healing? Can it cut through falsehood to expose truth? Can it illuminate wrongs in society and move us toward justice?
We often think of God as invisible. This program invites us to think about ways God is visible in our lives and our world. Before his journey to the cross, Jesus appeared in all his glory and light. But he did not stay there. Affirmed in our humanity by Jesus himself, how do we press on and reflect the light of truth into the dark places of this world?
