Lent 2017 “From Darkness to Light”
The world that the bible was written in was much different from our own. For example, when it got dark the only source of light that most people had available to them was a small oil lamp that did not give off much light. So it is not surprising that biblical writers used the images of darkness and light to talk about God’s relationship with his people. When people sinned and rejected God they were said to be in darkness. When people accepted God they were said to be in the light. It is for these reasons that our parish Lenten Message Series is about going “from darkness to light. Make this Lent different, move from darkness to light with your parish family and in your home.
