Psalm 27:1 NIV
 The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?
It always seems appropriate that Advent comes in this country when the days are at their shortest and the mornings and evenings are dark and we begin to treasure the light and to long for the sun to shine. Advent is a time of longing, of waiting with hope, of looking forward to the coming of the light and of spiritual preparation for the Lord to shine in the darkness. How do we live in the darkness? The Lord is my light and salvation – whom shall I fear?
Lord, sometimes the world seems a dark and frightening place. Help us to look to you and to know your light shining in and through us!
