A Message from the Rectora

The verse for our weekend is from Matthew 5:14-16. “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”

In our theme song, ”Go Light Your World”, the chorus says:
Carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the hopeless, confused and torn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world
Take your candle, and go light your world

How many times does God present us with opportunities to take His unconditional love to make the world a better place, to bring joy to those around us? Whether at work, church, the grocery store, the gym or with our family and friends, we have an opportunity to shine like a beacon of light -- a light that radiates Jesus’ love, understanding and forgiveness.

Take your candle and go light your worldDe Colores!
