Brilliant in the Darkness

Modified on: November 30, 2017

The stars shine so brightly in the winter darkness, all the brighter the colder it is.

And so with us: in this cold season, when grief we have suffered and differences from those around us can darken our minds and hearts, a brilliance within us nonetheless shines. Our thoughtfulness, our kindness, our resolve, our fellowship

illuminate the world.

This December, join your light with this congregation’s; where hope, and joy, and tenacity, and freedom constellate

brilliant in the darkness.
