Dec 1: Darkness and Light

Earlier today, the sunshine made outdoors look cheerful and inviting. I was eager to be out for a walk in it, but by the time I made it to our local park, the sky was grey and the light was fading.  That connects with my theme for this December blog, of darkness and of light. Darkness because the days are shorter and colder, at least for those of us in the northern hemisphere, light because in this season we remember the birth of Jesus (even though it couldn’t possibly have really been in December), who was the light that came into the world. John’s gospel calls him ‘The true light that gives life to everyone’.

This year it feels like it’s been an especially long haul to get to this point, and we need hope and light more than ever. What, I wonder, gives you hope at the moment?

December Blog

After the difficult year we’ve had, it seems to me that December/Advent could be an important time for us. I want to look for hope and light in the darkness, reminders of good news, whilst being honest about how I’m finding things.

I thought it would be good to share some thoughts from myself and others on the themes of light and hope in the darkness, during December. If you want to join in, please do so, and comment or add your own thoughts once the blogs start appearing.
