The Community of Light

4 Jan


Light takes many forms,
just like the containers that hold it.
Tall, short, slender, chubby, prominent,
in the background.  But Light fills them all,
well, almost all.  And even when you
feel like Light has gone out, you’ve got lots of
Light around  you…the same flame in others who
are there to comfort, encourage, console, and to share
their Light so that you may shine once again.
It’s call Community, the Community of the Light,
the Body of Christ.
Let your Light shine so that others may know,
and if your Light grows dim or vanishes,
don’t worry.  We’re here.

    Oh, Roger, how so true and thankfully so. So much darkness and sadness in the world right now, and it’s my faith and those believers around me that help to keep away the deep anxiety and fear about the future. I love the treasure of your words…. Tiggy
