Reflection for the Week - April 15

Light is such an amazing phenomena, as it is so infused with a surplus of meaning, and therefore difficult to bring to closure. It appears, uncovers, and illumines, to mention just a few metaphors. In stories, Jesus is said to be the light of all people; to be the light that shines in the darkness. He also is recorded as saying: “I am the light of the world,” and that “when we love one another, we inhabit the light.” As I get older, I enjoy the testimony of John more and more. Metaphors and stories of light are indeed perplexing, but that is one of the reasons why they’re attractive. They open up the unseen, engage and surpass the darkness, and point us towards that which cannot be captured or owned.
