The Luminous Dark
Rev. Chandler Stokes
We will begin by rememberingeven the darkness is not dark to God—and that when we find ourselves in oppressive darkness, we are not alone; God has habitually met God’s people in their darkness: pointing to the stars at night for Abraham to count his descendants to come, starting their exodus on Passover night, meeting Moses in the darkness on Mt. Sinai, converting Saul in his blindness, and raising Jesus in the dark of the tomb. All these liberating gifts, all given in the darkness.
