They rise in the darkness as a light for the upright;

          they are gracious, merciful, and righteous. (Psalm 112:4)

Even though some restrictions are being lifted and places are beginning to open up in our community, there is still a heaviness in the air, an anxious feeling in many hearts, a seeming darkness hovering over us. But the psalmist sings that it is for such a time as this that we are here. She sings that we were made to shine into dark times (v. 4a). We were made to sing grace and mercy and righteousness into uncertainty (v. 4b). We were made to live fearlessly for justice (v. 5, 7). So with grace and mercy and righteousness and courage and confidence, let us shine the light of Christ into dark times, for that is our purpose and that is where our true happiness is found (v. 1). – rc
