The judgment of light

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
         
         
         And this is the judgment,
         that the light has come into the world.

                  —John 3.19

                  •

The light does not say anything.
It uncloaks what is,
it shows a way.

                  •

After the long winter
light beckons the crocuses.

                  •

In the corner beneath the table
your warm hand
reaches in without insisting,
deepens all the colors,
and gives everything a halo,
even the little souls of dust
floating in the dark air.

                  •

In the daytime
if you want to know
you can tell if you’re hiding.

                  •

God forgives sin
like light forgives darkness.

                  •

         
         
Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
