Isaiah 1:1-3 (NIVUK)
1 Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
2 See, darkness covers the earth
and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the Lord rises upon you
and his glory appears over you.
3 Nations will come to your light,
and kings to the brightness of your dawn.
We’re heading towards the shortest day of the year. At the moment the night is quick to close in and slow to withdraw. This echoes our world, although there is much to enjoy, there is also much darkness too. But in this darkness, we can find hope in the coming of God’s Son, the Light who shines!
As we celebrate SHINE! on Sunday, may we play part in bringing your light to our world.
