Treasures in the darkness - holding the light for those we support
- Revd Steve Gurr
Being in a place of darkness or despair is often a very overwhelming, frightening, and disorientating experience for people. It can feel never-ending and hopeless - like there is no way out.
For Christians who come alongside those who find themselves in darkness, we can be overcome by our concern for the spiritual wellbeing of others or feel concerned that we are unable to help. The backdrop of the Advent season will provide the context for our reflections together.
Themes for this day to include:
- exploring and engaging with notions of darkness from a Christian perspective
- understanding ‘soul pain’
- sensitive accompanying of those in places of darkness
- ‘keeping the faith’ and ‘holding the light’ alongside those we support
- the place of silence in our caring
- the darkness as a gateway to discovering Christ’s light
- looking after ourselves as we look after others
The day will include times of prayer together, discussion, reflective activities and personal space.
