For far too long the Church in America has been living in the shadows. She has excused her behavior with theological rhetoric and the success of yesterday. However, God has placed with in her one of the most powerful elements in the universe; Light. We, the Church, the called out ones, followers of Jesus Christ, are the light of the world. The world desperately needs the Church to be the light. Light always opens up the path to a future that can only be lived in the LIGHT and not in the shadows.
