Christmas is LIGHT
spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will
not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’” (John 8:12)
come from a star. But somehow Christmas
means seeing all of life in a new light.
We live so much of our lives engulfed by the darkness or stumbling among
the shadows of our selfishness. We live
in a world beclouded by evil and hostility, by greed and hatred. Light means liberation! Light means freedom! Light means a new, better and brighter
day! As people who walk so often in
darkness may we see a great light -- the light and splendor of Christmas.
