Sun Rising

“Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for he has looked favorably on his people and redeemed them…
By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.” Luke 1:68-79

sun rise
As one waits in darkness
the sun’s light begins
to spread across the landscape
even before the sun rises and is visible.

So we look forward
to what is promised…

light shining in the darkness
which removes the darkness.

It is not darkness trying to become light.

This change comes inexorably and always through
God’s presence among us.
