If he were a King, a governor, if the only name that described him were, The Almighty, you might well doubt whether there could be light enough in him for you and your darkness. But he is your Father and more your Father than the word can mean in any lips but his who said, “my Father and your Father, my God and your God”. And such a Father is light, an infinite, perfect light. He is light and in him is no darkness at all. If anything seems to be in him that you cannot be content with, be sure that ripening of your love to your fellows and to him, the source of your being will make you at length know that anything else than just what he is would have been to you an endless loss. Be not afraid to build upon the rock, Christ, with your holy imagination. Let no one persuade you that there is in him a little darkness because of something he has said which his creature interprets as darkness.
