What Gets You Through the Night?
In “Light of Clear Blue Morning,” Dolly Parton sings: “It’s been a long dark night, and I’ve been a waitin’ for the morning…. And everything’s gonna be all right, ’cause I can see the light of a clear blue morning.” After a night of worries, restlessness, and half-awake nightmares, the morning dawn can be such a welcome relief. But what is it that gets us through the night? How is our faith adequate for the hardest, longest, darkest nights of our life?

February Worship Theme: The Long Haul (Perseverance)
The Chinese symbol for perseverance is a knife poised over a heart. There is something about the long haul that requires big heartedness, strength, a willingness to be wounded, and still lean into life. Author and social critic Margaret Wheatley writes, “Human experience is the story of perseverance.” Every one of us knows what it is to be in it for the “long haul.” At one point or another this life will require us to do something that’s hard, that we hate, that hurts, or that we don’t believe we can do, but we do it. The question is how to go the distance without the journey eating you alive? This month we explore the nature of perseverance, the long haul, and finding the life giving qualities-entwined in it all.
