How the light gets in

For years, those closest to  me have been urging me to share my stories and reflections, and to share them publicly, not just privately.

So much of my life experience seems to be about seeing, witnessing, hearing about, or living through, situations of pain and suffering, hopelessness and despair, poverty and injustice.

On face value, life can feel full of darkness.

Yet, as Leonard Cohen once famously said, “There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.

Again and again, I have seen God shine into the darkness, reside in the midst of the darkness, dispel the darknessTime after time, I have experienced His life, power, glory, character, wisdom, and presence, breaking in and breaking through. 

Through this blog, I hope to be able to testify to the way God’s light always seems to find the cracks in the darkness: “The light shines through the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.” (John 1:5, Holy Bible, New Living Translation)
