“In the beginning was darkness, mystery, and you.
By your Word, you shattered the darkness with light.
You set in the sky radiant beams of sunlight and punctured the night sky with sparkling jewels.
You forever changed our darkness.
Though there are shadows and worries,
You have placed your Word in us to be a lamp for our feet.
You have given your Spirit like a bright guiding star.
You fill us with your Love as glorious as the sun.
You place your Truth like a crescent moon.
Every darkness is overcome with Light.
And every Light contains shafts of your Eternal Light.”
(Eucharist Prayer by Larry Peacock)
May you and your family have a bright and blessed New Year.
Grace and Peace,
Im and Hee-Soo Jung
