4 YET NOW TAKE COURAGE Haggai 1
To this day, candlelit panes let me know that I am waited for; that there is a place where it is warm, where I can rest, where I am wanted. A light in the window is a means of grace.
If saints are those through whom the light has shown, one way to honor All Saints is to reflect their light into the darkness of the season now at hand. We can do so in a literal fashion.
First, by pulling out those candles dedicated last year. Secondly, by adding to these. Think about people who burned or still burn for others, not counting the cost. How about gifting their light to our neighborhood?
To do so, by Monday, November 16, our main office needs: 1. Cash or check designated to reflect your gift. 2. The name of a saint you wish to honor. Any surplus dollars cover the cost of batteries and replacement bulbs. Candles will be placed in the sills of Boulevard beginning with those windows in the darkest places of our premises. ‘Take courage,’ we can say. Letting the light speak for itself: ‘Take courage.’
