God guided the Israelites out of the desert with a pillar of light as a sign of his faithfulness. In the northern hemisphere, Advent occurs in the year’s darkest season. Our custom, as we await Christ’s birth, is to add lights to our dark world. As we follow the incarnate Jesus, he promises we will never walk in darkness. From God we have the goodness, the faithfulness, and the gift of light to share our love in our world.
