The light shines in the darkness
and the darkness has not overcome it...
The Christ candle continues to burn -
it burns clear in all the demands of life
illuminating the possibility of rest
it burns true in days of confusion
pointing the way to clarity
it burns steadily when all is shifting
alluding to calm in the storm.
Every day becomes a holy day
Lit by God in our midst.
Incarnation - God is with us still
