A Total Eclipse: Reflecting Light and Wonder


This past Sunday’s message resonated as we explored the power of faith in 1 John. We learned that darkness may come but cannot extinguish the light of Christ within us. This concept was mirrored in the awe-inspiring total solar eclipse many of us witnessed on Monday.

Did you have the chance to experience this celestial marvel? I was fortunate enough to witness it, and it was truly a sight to behold. As the moon temporarily blocked the sun, it evoked a sense of wonder in me. It was a reminder that the light remains even in moments of shadow.

The eclipse serves as a powerful metaphor for our faith. Just as the moon cannot permanently eclipse the sun, darkness cannot extinguish the radiance of our faith. Challenges and hardships may cast shadows over our lives, but like the moon eventually moving on, these shadows will pass.

John’s message reminds us that following Christ is a journey, not a destination. We strive to walk in his light, reflecting God’s love with every step. When we stumble, we confess, seek forgiveness, and get back on track. May our collective light shine brightly, illuminating the world around us, just as the sun inevitably returns after the eclipse.

Grace and peace!
