Isaiah 60:1-5, Light
By Jonathan Mudge
Darkness. For our ancestors the darkness of night was a treacherous time. Today many people continue to live in perilous conditions in which these concerns are ever present. Most of us are able to escape the physical darkness of night if we so choose. However, the periods of darkness that will inevitably enter our lives can cover our souls just as when nightfall covers the earth. This darkness is just as real and dangerous. We long for a light to guide us.
