What can we learn about God’s activity in the midst of our pain & suffering from the story of Esther in the Old Testament?
Looking for Light
Let’s be honest: Life is hard right now. Between social distancing, self-isolation, the spread of the virus, the collapse of the economy, the closure of all non-essential services… there’s a lot of darkness in our lives and in our world right now. At times, it can feel hopeless and like the darkness is going to win.
And yet, even in the darkness, there is still light. And that light’s name is JESUS. In John 8:12, Jesus said that “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
And so as we feel the darkness closing in on us in these days, we must look to the Light to find a way forward together.
But what does that look like? Practically speaking, how can we look for light in the midst of this darkness? As followers of Jesus (who is the LIGHT!); what attitudes, behaviours and practices should we embrace in this season of difficulty and uncertainty?
During this time of social-distancing and self-isolation, join us online each and every Sunday at 10:30AM as we learn to see in the dark together.
