The Reign of God as light. Comments to: adebelak@redeemerluth.com

The Reign of God as light exposes all and welcomes all. Nothing goes unseen within this divine way of life. Nothing needs to go unseen - all things are made whole within this light. The light does not point out errors or flaws, it highlights the expansiveness of God's love - for God's love will take us to places and people we would not choose to go. There are no dark places. There is only light and God welcomes all within the brilliance of that light. The Reign of God as light makes it quite clear that we do not have the power to move others off into the darkness of life. Rather, we are being delivered into a new realm of living - wide open and full of unbounded love for all.

O God of New Life and All Hopefulness, take us in and bring us into your eternal embrace. Amen.
