Darkness cannot overcome the light

by | Jan 31, 2021 | Reflections

I love this poem Peter wrote and shared during this morning’s service!  A reminder that being an agent of light matters, and makes a difference. (John)

darkness cannot overcome the light

but it sure is trying

for the people walking in darkness

have seen a great light

blue light

and they cannot put it down

walking as children

they have learned to witness to this light

texting, tweeting, repeating

without missing a beat of the street

as they walk forward, onward

to the sound of fake news

as the powerful seek to abuse

prepare to be cancelled for any other views

dispelling what’s true as they seek to confuse

i mean who in their right mind would willingly choose

to follow the one whose message is always to refuse

the belief that we are a lost generation

that goodness and joy are not coursing through this nation
