12.13.15, Be the Light, Rev. Kent Matthies

When darkness hurts most, light relieves our souls. Diwali, Chanukah, Winter Solstice, Kwanzaa and Christmas all celebrate light and life. During this holiday season it is wonderful to receive and celebrate the light. However, a powerful faith calls upon all of us to be the light. To paraphrase John F. Kennedy, “Ask not what your holidays can do for you. Ask what you can do for the holidays.”
