New dawn

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.

         In the beginning…the earth was a formless void
         and darkness covered the face of the deep.
         God breathed deeply over the face of the waters.
         Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.

                   —Genesis 1.1-3
         By the tender mercies of our God,
         the dawn will rise upon us from above,
         to give light to those who dwell in darkness and in the shadow of death,
         and to guide our feet into the ways of peace.

                    — Luke 1.78-79

         It is now the moment for you to wake from sleep.
         For salvation is nearer to us now than when we became believers;
         the night is far gone, the day is near.
         Let us then lay aside the works of darkness and put on the armor of light.

                  — Romans 13.11-12

In the darkness, in the chaos, God whispers.
The light of new creation rises slowly.
The dawn of a new world blossoms, rising silently
throughout the universe, and within you.
Your soul is the color of the sky before the dawn.
God is coming in a new way.
Open yourself.
Let the light unfold in you.

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
