Hallowed Darkness

Walking Together In Darkness

April 10, 2022 • Dave Romoser

The Scriptures tell story after story of the faithful who experienced some form of a "walk in the darkness" From Abram & Sarah, Moses, Joseph, Job and the prophets to Jesus, Peter, Paul and so many more. There is a power inherent in the story of another's journey in darkness that can help each of us experience a new dimension of God's goodness and love, giving us hope for when our journey comes and the capacity to be present with those already there. | Interview with Grant & Mikhaela Romoser-Claunch

How does our relationship to physical darkness inform us about the relationship we may have with the inner kind - the kind that disrupts restfulness, keeping us awake at night (Jesus resting in the storm). As we explore the Dark Seas together, may we grow in the confidence to really trust that all of Creation is subject to God’s power of restoration, God’s dominion—from sea turtles, to sea monsters— we can rest in the mystery of darkness, because God is with us.

Lighting The Night

March 13, 2022 • Lindsey Apple

When we choose to artificially light the night, what is it that we’re ultimately relying on? When we choose a ‘full solar spirituality’, where does our reliance come from? From the physical world of light and darkness, to our metaphorical and spiritual worlds of light and darkness, what sustains us, what do we rely on?

Fruitful Darkness

March 6, 2022 • Dave Romoser

Perhaps for numerous reasons, most of us tend to have primarily negative associations with "darkness". Whether real or metaphorical, it is not a space we move into willingly with anticipation. But what if there are truths we can only learn or experience in the dark? What if there is good in it after all?
