" People who have come to know the joy of God do not deny the darkness,
but they choose not to live in it. They claim that the light that shines in the
darkness can be trusted more than the darkness itself and that a little bit of
light can dispel a lot of darkness. They point each other to flashes of light
here and there, and remind each other that they reveal the hidden but real
presence of God."
