Reflection for the Week

Walking through the shadows of death is a lifelong journey. As we ramble along, there will be struggles to find the way. The promise of God in Christ is light, a piercing and revealing action that illuminates the path, and the gift of the Holy Spirit, who will not lead us in a false or dubious direction: life is our destiny. This two-fold covenant blessing ensures us that we are not left to merely our own devices for developing deeper community with God, self, other, and world, even when foreboding silhouettes shroud our every step.
