Light is a powerful symbol that seems to speak to our spirits and gives us a sense of reverence and hope. Jesus said, “I am the light of the world.” When our Acolytes bring in the light, it is a way to signal that worship has begun and to remind us that Jesus Christ is present with us in worship. The power of one candle to pierce the darkness is a strong biblical image that we understand. Jesus also said to his followers, “You are the light of the world.” When the Christ-light is carried out in front of us at the end of our worship, we are reminded that Christ goes with us, and we are to be Christ-light bearers in the world.
