Let Your Light Shine: Ignited for Justice

Trinity UMW Programs and Events

“God’s first creative activity was creating light and separating it from darkness to make sense of the existing chaos. In Revelation, when creation is restored, we are told that God will be our light. We will be challenged to be God’s light in the world as Christ’s disciples . . . reminded to shine a light on issues that crush and marginalize God’s children. . . empowered to question and oppose systems and powers of darkness and evil. We are emboldened by the Light of Life and the Word that give us hope to practice justice in the world.”
