The historical and biblical records show — in fact, our own lives bear
witness to the fact — that really difficult times often feel like they are
prevailing. Yet, the scriptures remind us that God is still at work creating
life. I maintain the belief that Genesis had it correct – what God created, and
what God continues to create is good. In fact, it is very good.
I maintain the belief that John had it correct – that what God gave to the
world was “life, and the life was the light for all people. The light shines in
the darkness, and the darkness doesn’t extinguish the light.”
