LEANING INTO THE LIGHT
Barry Lopez wrote, “How is one to live a moral and compassionate existence when one is fully aware of the blood, the horror inherent in life, when one finds darkness not only in one’s culture but within oneself? If there is a stage at which an individual life becomes truly adult, it must be when one grasps the irony in its unfolding and accepts responsibility for a life lived in the midst of such paradox. One must live in the middle of contradiction, because if all contradiction were eliminated at once life would collapse. There are simply no answers to some of the great pressing questions. You continue to live them out, making your life a worthy expression of leaning into the light.”
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” Lean into the light brothers and sisters.
“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” Jesus
