Light in a dark world
This month’s greetings from the Rector:
As the clocks go back and the dark nights draw in the lights in our life become ever more important. We take light for granted these days, flicking a switch and being taken from darkness into light. Even with the instant light that shines in our lives there are areas of darkness that only the light of Jesus can reach. The things we cannot forgive ourselves for, the things other people cannot forgive us for.
November sees the end of one church year, and the beginning of the next as we celebrate Christ the King and then enter a new year with the Season of Advent. God offers us a fresh beginning, where our sins are forgiven and the burdens we carry are taken from us. As we bask in more and more artificial light in the winter months, perhaps as you turn on a light you might pause to give thanks for the one true light, and feel the weight on your shoulders ease a little as you do so.
With every blessing
