Something to think and pray about this week
When I was in my early twenties, I backpacked around Scotland. At my northernmost destination, I stayed at a sheep farm. I remember waking up in the middle of the night, checking my watch, only four o’clock, and being shocked to see the sun outside my window blazing down on the fields. Since I’d expected darkness, the sun seemed unbearably bright. Later, on the Isle of Skye, I watched the sun go down at ten at night and the sky gradually grow a darker blue but never turn black. I’m sure the natives barely noticed, but to me this perpetual daylight seemed like a sign. Though we sometimes turn away from brightness, preferring dark, the light is out there burning always, pouring through the universe at the greatest possible speed, forever coming, light upon light, dawning through the darkness.
