Glimpses of Glory in Lent - Day 6

'How happy are those who see the dawn; those for whom night is gone' (Psalm of the Dawn by Stephen Cherry in Barefoot Prayers)
Early morning sunlight on Sark
 I read these words this morning. Later in the day I was one of those at a funeral service for a man of great faith, one who has been amuch loved leader in the Methodist Church. Whilst acknowledging loss, it was a service full of hope, the hope of resurrection.

This evening the prayers in the Mission Council of the United Reformed Church began with the words:
'May the Lord Almighty, grant you a quiet night and a perfect end.'

And so I go to bed, trusting in God, whose glory I have glimpsed today, light overcoming darkness.
