Shining, surprising light

On this hallowed eve, I remember how God has created both light and darkness, each a gift. Without one, how would we experience the other?

Jesus comes in surprising ways, sometimes not unlike the child jumping out in a costume and shouting "Boo!" We look and wonder, "Who are you? Is that you?"

In this night of hidden identity, flashlights and jack o'lanterns, may you see the hidden and revealed light of Christ. Even as children gather up treats, may you sense the gathering of the great cloud of witnesses that we recognize and remember tomorrow - those who surround you in loving embrace and cheer you on as you walk the way of Jesus.

Happy hallowed eve,

Pastor Joy
