Candles in the window
From Val B
Those of you who use ‘Facebook‘ may have seen my candle.
Each day I receive up to 40 ‘likes’ and I am presuming that those who respond have noticed that I change the text each day – e.g. Let your light shine forth! – The light of the world! – This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine!. The responses come from many places in the world and are from Christian, Muslims and some without a faith, illustrating that many, of whatever persuasion (or none), are seeking comfort and hope in the light of the world.
I managed to upload Sheila and Roy’s photograph on Sunday showing the candle to the forefront of St. George’s in the early evening light. You can see it below.
Many of you have indicated that you are also lighting candles in your windows at 7:00pm and it is heart-warming to think of so many candles shining out into our struggling world; accompanied today by a prayer sent by Kathryn Darby, who received it from a friend in Belfast.
Dear Lord, I pray that You will lead us all safely by the hand through this dark tunnel and out into the sunshine of renewed life. Amen.
We ask for God’s blessing on each one of us and on those whom we love.
