From the Dean’s Desk… Reflecting on darkness and light, blindness and sight

“We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming when no one can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” (John 9:4-5)

Man born blind, Brian Jekel

There is no darkness there,
But only light most bright;
There is no blindness there,
But only holy sight.

There is no lostness there,
But only home’s delight;
There is no suffering there,
But only end of night.

There is no here and there,
But only God’s invite;
There is no judgement there,
But only grace outright.

There is no hatred there,
But only love’s great height;
There is no sorrow there,
But only Christ, love’s light.

Thanks be to God!
