Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. - Genesis 1:3
The first word that God speaks into our world is a command for light, that vital component of every journey. As we set forth this Advent the world of nature is growing darker, the days ever shorter. This sometimes seems to mirror our spiritual state so we can honestly begin today by praying these words of God back to God.
We ask this day for light for our Advent journey.
