Light out of Darkness

Saturday, May 10

There is a wholeness to our lives that can only be found by embracing the untamed darkness, the discontinuity and brokenness of the sudden surprises that will befall us all; the loss of control of our lives is the necessary precondition of new life, a newness of life that is discovered in darkness and rooted nowhere else.

Walter Brueggeman, as interpreted by Deborah Smith Douglas, Weavings, vol. xxix, # 3
