Reflection for the Week

There is much gloom and darkness in the world and ourselves. Superficial gimmicks, legalistic devices, political treaties, new economic policies, and even one world government will not stem the tide. Scriptured voices point to the light, but the night is long and sometimes seems endless. Prophets, psalmists, artists, and poets arise. Help us break through the masquerade and tell the story again about the way it really is. In the midst of denouncing this dark tragedy, there is a call to joy and hope, as God has not forgotten his people, redemption is already in action, and someday there will only be light.
