  • "Light Sings"

    Adam Dyer, Intern Minister

    “A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.” — Maya Angelou

    “Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark.” ― Rabindranath Tagore

    Question for Reflection— How does light sing in your life?
