The light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not put it out.

What It’s been quite a week. All of us have been involved in conversations about the virus and health which we never imagined we would ever have. In many ways we are seeing that ‘normal’ life and daily habits we have known are undergoing significant change and life ahead looks more uncertain.

At such times people will be turning to various media and means to find hope and help. Some become news junkies, others… whatever the converse is. Some will be working their way through piles of information in great detail, others I have spoken to seem comparatively unmoved by events.

What do we do as God’s people? We have faith. We will pray and trust and care and act. We will go to the source of a peace that the world cannot know and from that place find renewed strength and restored purpose to be about the work of God.

The light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not put it out.
