A torch to show us the way

Isaiah 40:5

And the glory of God shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.

​Hidden God, immortal, invisible, in the darkness of this troubled world we often find it hard to believe you are there.  We listen to the news and hear of war and starvation and genocide.  We look around us in our communities and see racial intolerance, bigotry, hatred and intolerance.  We look into our hearts and find dark corners known only to ourselves and to you.  And yet……..

And yet behind the darkest clouds the sun is shining. 

And so in faith we know that you are there.  You are there, waiting to break through and shine your light into the darkest places.  You are there, longing to open the eyes of the blind to see the glory of your presence.  You are there for all people in all places and, in time, your glory will be revealed and everyone will see it.  For this we give you thanks and praise.
