‘You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hidden. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to God in heaven.
Reflection by Janet Derby
VBS Sunday 2019 happened at Pilgrimage yesterday. Each year, I am amazed at the way that ideas on a page come to life through our volunteers and children. Not only did the children learn the stories, but they put the concepts of faith, justice, and encouragement into practice. Dozens of lunch bags were assembled for MUST Ministries. Craft kits for Family Promise children were put together. Toiletry items were put into socks of love. The children understood that all of us have God’s light in us and we can shine it into the world to make it a better place.
God of Light and Love, Thank you for the VBS volunteers who let their light shine for our children. Help us to continue to reflect your love in the world. Amen
