“He came to be a witness, to point the way to the Light of Life, and to help everyone believe” John 1:7


My favorite thing at Christmas time is the lights. They shine so beautifully in the night and bring warmth, joy and hope to my soul. Every Christmas Eve, our next door neighbors line our street with luminaries. I look forward to it every year. The tradition comes from the Roman Catholic Church and the lights from the luminaries were believed to guide the spirit of the Christ child into everyone’s homes. Early on, these luminaries were actually bonfires of pinion branches set atop a 3 ft high square. Today, luminaries are made out of a brown paper bag weighted with sand and illuminated from within by a candle.

A luminary is defined as a body that gives light. Read that again…a body that gives light. The symbolism here is not lost on me. Friends, we are the body that gives light to the world! After an incredible year filled with so much chaos and dare I say darkness, the light reminds us that we have the power to help illuminate the path for one another. It matters that we bear the light for one another. It matters that hold witness to the Light that came into the world to save us. It matters that we shine this Light for ALL to see.

Friends, who holds the light for you? Who might you need to hold the light for in this season?


Blessed are you
who bear the light
in unbearable times,
who testify
to its endurance
amid the unendurable,
who bear witness
to its persistence,
when everything seems
in shadow
and grief.
Blessed are you in whom the light lives,
In whom the brightness blazes-
your heart a chapel,
an altar where
in the deepest night
can be seen
the fire that
shines forth in you
in unaccountable faith,
in stubborn hope,
in love that illumines
every broken thing
it finds.
– Jan Richardson
