Every tunnel needs a light at the end, the way out. We aren’t designed to live in darkness, so we thirst for signs that will show us how to illuminate our lives. Yesterday the pastor in Sutherland Springs, Texas asked the community to choose light over darkness in the aftermath of a devil’s massacre. The choice, if that’s what it is, may be a moment of pure symbolism that doesn’t alter the fact that you should look both ways before crossing the street. The alternative, to live with hate and revenge, is a darkness that drapes any horrific act of killing. We really have no choice but to go towards the light, the way out.
