Dwelling on the theme of Light – so appropriate to the seasons of Christmas and Epiphany, and featuring so prominently in the introduction to John’s Gospel – we’ll spend three weeks celebrating the dawning light of Christ, and pondering what this might mean for our lives, and for our world.

Today, we continue by considering the stories of three witnesses to the light of Christ: John the Baptist, Mary Magdalene, and Saul of Tarsus. What did each of these witnesses come to see, and how did each of their encounters with Jesus the Christ profoundly transform their vision of God and God’s way with the world? How might our vision be similarly transformed?
