The light shines in the darkness

Bereavement, unemployment, sadness... it might feel like the darkness is closing in.

Yet despite the suffering and difficulties, perhaps it is just the start of the journey to something better.

In this short video, Archdeacon Ian reminds us of the first chapter in the Gospel of St John: "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it," and says, "whatever darkness you might know in your life today, I hope you can hold on to St John's promise."

Looking ahead to the time when we can meet for public worship again, Ian says: "I hope that we will return with a greater awareness that Christ is not locked down in a building, however beautiful that might be, his presence, his light, is all around us illuminating this world he has made and if we just look we will see and we can wonder...if we have learned anything, let it be that our buildings are but one small part of the full revelation of God and we should not allow ourselves to become obsessed with what happens in them."
