surprise that I loved all the Christmas lights. But I really loved the light pictured here: the Moravian star. Beautiful.

We had walked past (and under) this star earlier in the evening, before going to see the Putz at Central Moravian Church. And walking back towards the car, we passed this star again–the bookstore was closed at this point, though. So the light stood out more, because it was both darker outside and inside the book shop.

Christ, the light of the world, came to shine his light, and the light of God’s love, upon the world filled with darkness. How are we walking in the light, helping to reflect God’s love and light to people around us? How can our light be brighter? Not for the sake of being beautiful, but for the sake of bringing the light of Christ to the world around us?
