“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.” John 1:5

At the Pension Fund breakfast during General Assembly, keynote speaker Rev. Ben Bohren talked about times in his life that were the darkest. He remembered the moments where it seemed that the shadows were winning. And then he recalled, that even then, in the midst of the darkness, pinpricks of light shone through. Faint sometime. Barely visible. But always there. “The light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not overcome it.”
