Over the past couple of years we’ve been touched by the darkness: lived in shadows of isolation, absorbed stories of gross injustice, and been forced to confront our own inner darkness. And, if we’re not careful, that has a distorting effect. We curve in on ourselves, seeking to protect instead of serve, choosing suspicion over trust, cynicism in place of belief. Psychologists describe this as “cave syndrome.” But it’s in the darkness that we need the to walk out in the light. A light that clarifies what’s true from what’s untrue, a light that heals what hurts, a light that transforms our darkness. Jesus proclaims, “I am the light of the world whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life” (Jn. 8:12). Join us this Fall as we explore what it means to be a City of Light.
