LET THE LIGHT IN

Recognizing the Light of God’s Radiance in Our Everyday

We have this gut-level sense that even the most mundane moments of life are radiant with the Light of God. Yet sometimes, we sleep through life as it blurs before us. 

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE TO LET THE LIGHT IN? 

WHAT IS THE ONE THING THAT IS STIRRING IN YOU?

Earth is crammed with heaven. Every common bush afire with God, but only those who see take off their shoes. The rest just pick the berries.
— Elizabeth Browning

The taking off their shoes that Browning writes about just might be stopping to listen-- opening our eyes and heart to take God in. We are on sacred ground when we are present to those before us and present to what is within us. Listen. What is the Light that enters your days?
