Salt and Light
November 27 • Carla Olsen Draper
As the days get shorter and physical darkness increases, Advent invites us to reflect on the darkness of our world in order to increase our longing for God to break in with divine light. In the season of Advent, we enter the story of God in a posture of waiting. We position ourselves with God’s people of old, who waited for the Messiah to shine His light in their darkness. We consider on our own needs, waiting for Jesus to break into our places of darkness. We also look to the future together, waiting for Jesus to come again and dispel all darkness forever. Join us Sunday as we consider this image of light and reflect on the wonder that Jesus names those who enter His Kingdom and follow Him; salt of the earth and light of the world. Come explore the call to live out this identity in a dark world that needs the kind of change only Jesus can bring.
