It was Christmas Eve, which is January 6 here, and we were looking out of our apartment window with eager expectation. No, we weren’t waiting for Santa—we were waiting for the light. We caught a glimpse of a flicker in one window, then in another–soon the apartment building across the way from us was glowing a bit brighter. People here light a candle, place it on their windowsill, and then open their window a crack just before midnight on Christmas Eve. This is done in memory of Joseph & Mary, and how they needed a place to stay. The people of GM symbolically light a candle, lighting the way, and “inviting” them into their homes. As we watched our neighbors perform this ritual, we cried out to God that their eyes would be opened to His truth, that they would see His light, and welcome His Spirit into their lives.
