In this week’s praying the parables Chris talks about the Night which belongs to the rhythm of our lives every bit as much as day. The book of Genesis describes God creating the two, night and day, the underlying rhythm of being and becoming.
In the darkness – whatever its cause and effects might be for you – life goes on growing if only you can be receptive to it. You can’t make light happen; it will come when it comes. And the darkness itself holds its invitation, for God dwells here too. Rest…be receptive
Befriend the night:
Go out on a clear night – away from street lights if you can – and gaze up at the stars.
