Maranatha!

John 1:9
The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.

Layer upon layer of darkness
Aleppo
Syria
Lebanon
Sudan
Somalia
Beirut
France
Brussels
Germany
War and terror
Political unrest
Prison riots
Industrial unrest
Withdrawal of labour
Grief and loss
And so it continues
Finding light in the darkness of 2016
takes some doing
Much like the world into which
Jesus was born
Born for those who grieve
Who were afraid
who were oppressed
who were displaced
who were longing
for a different way of life.
And still he comes
with the promise 
of light
in all the darkness.
Maranatha!
Come, Lord Jesus, come!
