Longest Night

Today is the winter solstice -- the longest night of the year.  Many churches have Longest Night services on tis evening for those who have experienced loss during the year and need a different kind of worship service.

The part of the Longest Night that we don't often remember is that the light is coming -- sooner tomorrow than today, and sooner the day after than tomorrow.  The light returns.

It's hard to remember that on the Longest Night.

I wonder if that is one of the reasons that God gave us the church -- each other -- to be reminders to each other of the return of the light.
