Rock Salt and Lava Lamps – The Nature of Light

Greetings Dear Reader,

I have only been in total darkness a handful of times.  A few times I have been in caves.  Where I used to teach there was a professional dark room for photography.  As humans we are rarely in complete darkness.  There is  a true sense of disorientation in total darkness. 

The nature of light is that the darker it is the less light is necessary to cause stark contrast.  Some of us fear the dark.  I have never met someone who fears light.  It is light that draws us.  It is light in which most of us labor. 

A single match struck in the darkness of a moonless night can be seen from a mile away.  That is the nature of light.  Light draws us.  I am to draw people.  Light makes us feel safe.  I am supposed to make others feel safe.  As we look at the light aspect of this time together we need to remember that the light that we bear is not our own. 

Light of the World – Michael Card
  
You are the Light of the World oh Lord
You make Your servants shine
So how could there be any darkness in me
If You are the Light of the World
You are the Light of the World

You are the Bread of Life oh Lord
Broken to set us free
So how could there be any hunger in me
If You are the Bread of Life
You are the Bread of Life

You've overcome the world oh Lord
And given us victory
So how could I fear when trouble is near
If You've overcome the world
You've overcome the world

Wipe every tear away oh Lord
And teach us the song of the Lamb
The promise is true but it's still up to You
To wipe every tear away
Wipe every tear away
Wipe every tear away

Wishing you joy in the journey,
