As I’m reflecting through these days of Advent, with the help of Stephen Barrington, I am noticing how often the theme of light in darkness comes up. The world is pictured as lying in darkness and Jesus is seen as the Light, streaming into that darkness to make a difference. And the poor and vulnerable of the land are the ones who benefit the most.
Australia lies in darkness today as we wake up to to the reality of a Government that has lost its soul and where the vulnerable will suffer the most. The call is for the Church, as Jesus’ people embedded in that world of darkness, to live as light. A revolution of light. Where do we go with that?
