An Eastering God: Staying with Christ
Light and darkness are often used as allegories for good and evil or truth and untruth. The Unitive Way (Staying with Christ) corresponds to the sanctuary, where the Eucharist is distributed, the very high point of church life and the communion service. This is the point when we are ‘closest’ to Christ and his light.
The theme of these quotes and thoughts all relate to light and all the images show the strength of light (and so of Christ) apparent in or on the churches of our benefice (except one!). Can you recognise them all?
Jesus spoke to the Pharisees again. “I am the light of the world,” he said. “Whoever follows me will have the light of life and will never walk in darkness.” (John 8:12)
