Daily Scripture:

‘The dawn from on high shall break upon us, to shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death, and to guide our feet into the way of peace.’ (Luke 1.78-9)

Daily Reflection:

Thank God for all the freedoms we enjoy, however curtailed. Lily Ebert has this week been featuring on the news. At 97, she has survived a three-week battle with Covid. At 22 she was liberated from Auschwitz. Dozens of her family died there. She resolved to make it out alive to show the world “what can happen when we are not tolerant to each other. It was very important because you could choose one thing - choose life and carry on, or give up”. After liberation she vowed that she would “tell the world what happened – what can happen when we are not tolerant to each other”. Don't we all need light to guide our feet in the way of peace?!
