The Christmas Eve service is my favorite worship service every year, and my favorite moment is singing “Silent Night” when we light all our individual candles from the one candle in the front. The light gradually spreads from the front to the back to light the whole room. It is truly beautiful. Light spreads like this. A fire that is ignited with a small spark can blaze into a huge inferno.
Light spreads, and when we are being God’s Light we are called to spread, too. We are called to listen to the leading of God’s Holy Spirit and share the good news of God’s love and God’s call with the people in our lives. Sometimes this may be awkward or uncomfortable, but when we listen and follow the leading of the Spirit, we can change the lives of so many, and our light can shine even more brightly.
Grace and Peace,
