Scripture: John 1: 1 – 5 – Rev. Sarah Averette-Phillips and Rev. Jill Kirchner-Rose — In the Gospel of John, the author proclaims, “The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it.” In a Zoom call, Pastors Sarah Averette-Phillips and Jill Kirchner-Rose reflect on the year and question whether the light still shines… especially in 2020. After all, Covid deaths in the U.S. now top 330,000; the whole of creation groans as wild fires rage in the west and hurricanes grow in intensity in the south; and protests erupt as justice is not served. John never lived through 2020! Can John’s words hold meaning even during this year – one of the worst years on record? Join Pastors Sarah and Jill as they search for the light.
