Richard Bergen (brother of Thomas, the Residence Coordinator at the Centre) examined a Christian theology of light through a myriad of scriptures and the writings of many theologians. Light has so many compelling attributes, especially when compared to the opposing darkness, that it serves as a powerful metaphor to help us relate to the transcendent God. While Gnostics and Platonists deified physical Light, Isaiah recognized that someday the Sun will stop shining, and Christians believe that Jesus is God’s unique source of spiritual illumination. As the Sunday School song goes, “Hide it under a bushel? No!” [KH]
