I've been thinking a lot about my responsibility as a Christian to be a light in a dark world. My good friend Chris Duffett calls his blog 'Be the Light'. There's so much that is evil around us, and I must stand for what is good, and true, and right. And work to shine the light of God's love into the shadows. We used to sing in Sunday School
Jesus bids us shine with a clear pure light
Like a little candle burning in the night
In this world is darkness, so we must shine
You in your small corner
And I in mine
I still light my little candle every Sunday lunchtime .
Two remaining thoughts.
- Donald Trump - how is it that people still consider him fit for office? (any office not just POTUS)
- In reading all the recent hygge stuff, I found a lovely new word. lyseslukker is the Danish word for spoilsport, and it means the one who puts out the candles. I love that!
