Psalm 139: 11 & 12
“If I say, ‘Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light around me become night, even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is as bright as the day, for darkness is as light to you.”
What a wonderful image and what a comforting thought! As each of us is on our own, individual journey, so are the larger ripples of our life: family, friends, place of worship, place of work, place where we lay our heads at the end of the day, places where we sing, dance and enjoy life on this earth. More and more people of God in the Diocese of Newark are on a journey entitled Joining God in Shaping our Future. We are listening, watching and attending – to the words of the Scriptures, to the light of God that shines in each person we come in contact with and to the light upon the path as shown by our God who is up to something, out ahead of us in our neighborhoods. God will see us through any night as it is as bright as the day for Him. We must let our own lights shine in all the ripples of our life and keep our eyes open for those glimmers of God working in our communities and in our diocese. Amen.
