It is no accident the greatest light holidays of humankind fall during times that for many people of the world are cold and dark. As the days grow shorter and the weather become colder we need that little glimmer of hope that Christmas, Chanukah, Diwali, Kwanza and others bring to us.
This year times seem especially dark and hopeless for many. Hunger, lost jobs, homes and the dreams that went with them leave many struggling in a world that is calling out, no screaming for the light.
But there is good news! We are the guardians of that light we yearn for. So this holiday season help spread the light. Watch this blog for ways you can do your part in bringing light back to a dark world.

Through Jesus Christ we can get out of Darkness. Thank you for sharing. Best, Mtetar
I heard a song when I was a tiny child that helped me through much darkness. It went like this.
“Jesus is a light that is clear, pure and bright.
Like a little candle burning in the night.
In this world of darkness, so that we might shine
you in your small corner and I in mine.”
I always loved the simplicity of this.
I love the idea of spirituality become compared to or described as “light”.
