You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Matthew 5:14
There is an ambivalence about winter which offers an interesting sort of wisdom. Winter in our neck of the woods brings a lot of darkness, cold and barrenness for much, if not most, of the season, but, by contrast, it can also give us unexpected revelations of light and warmth and fruit-fullness. And our faith can help us make the most of this ambivalent experience.
