"Let Your Light Shine!"

with Guest Speaker, Reverend Sandra Campbell

The word “light” is significant in scripture. In the New Revised Standard Bible, light is mentioned 146 times in the Old Testament and 90 times in the New Testament. “Let there be light” is an English translation of Hebrew found in Genesis 1:3.  In the beginning, God declared light and light appeared. We have the same power to create light in the midst of darkness. We can be the light we want to see in the world. 

 
Light is the understanding principle in mind. In divine order, it always comes first in consciousness. Light is a symbol of wisdom. When Jesus said, “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12), He meant that He was the expressor of Truth in all its aspects. Inner light is the illumination of Spirit resident in the center of [our] being. ~ Charles Fillmore, The Revealing Word
 
“You are the light of the world...Let your light so shine among [others], that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven (Matthew 5:14, 16).”
 
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life (John 8:12).”
 
“Darkness cannot drive our darkness; only light can do that.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Guest Musician - FREEBO!

FREEBO is an award-winning singer/songwriter. For 30 years, Freebo played bass on recordings and toured with some of the great artists of our time--people like Bonnie Raitt (10 years), John Mayall, CSN, Maria Muldaur, Ringo Starr, Michelle Shocked, Loudon Wainwright, Dr. John, and many others.

Yearning for more creative expression, however, he began a process of deep inner discovery and has now evolved into an award-winning singer/songwriter, having won The 2008 Posi Award for Best Song in The Most Uniting Category. The Philadelphia Inquirer said of Freebo's latest CD, "Before the Separation flows with a compassionate spirit rooted in 60's ideals, packs a gently urgent relevancy, and is delivered with engaging earnestness."

Freebo's songs embrace stylistic elements from all the many musical genres he has played throughout his career, but they are uniquely his own. And in his live shows, performed on acoustic guitar, Freebo creates a unique, intimate, and inclusive atmosphere with his audience.
