Whether you’re reading this Journal sitting in a crowded subway car or quietly at home, or listening to it while driving alongside the ocean or looking out at a bustling town square—wherever you find yourself exploring this month’s issue—the light of Truth, Christ, is present to illumine your way.
This Christ, illustrated in the story of the birth of the Bethlehem babe that is celebrated by Christians around the world at this time of year, declares the supremacy of God’s truth. It’s the spiritual light that never goes out. As a star led a few to welcome the infant Jesus, so the Christ leads us today to the power, hope, and peace found in the allness of God, good. And in God’s presence, darkness fades away.
