Lighting Candles

April 2, 2016

I lit this candle today, remembering the churches we had visited as kids and the candles we lit in them. Our parents were probably trying to get us out of their hair for a few minutes.   We were in Phillipi, where we  

 read from Acts 16 at the side of the river locally called Lydia’s River  

  This is the presumed place of Lydia’s baptism by Paul. The water flows fast and clear. 

  Then we went to the church a few feet away and heard Voula’s narration of the story, illustrated by analog power point (Cliff Krcha) beginning with these images of Paul and Silas. 

Phillipi was extraordinary, and lightning the candle just as meaningful as it had been when I was a kid.
