Reflections Upon Light

IMG_20120520_185213I recently read a quote from author, Jodi Picoult.  It said, “Light trumps darkness every time.  You can stick a candle into the dark, but you can’t stick the dark into the light”!

Most of you have read or heard about the effects of depriving humans of sufficient light; especially sunlight.  This deprivation is known to negatively affect the personality and behavior of people.  They become moody and withdrawn.

Well, the Norway town of Rjukan is doing something about it!  Described as a “dark city” (they receive no sunlight for about 7 months), Rjukan is going to pierce that darkness with reflected sunlight.  Three computer controlled mirrors situated on the tops of surrounding mountains will light up a central part of the town.  The area to receive the reflected sunlight will only be around 2,150 square feet, but I bet it will be a very popular area!  Can you get a suntan from reflected sunlight?

The Bible states that “Jesus is the light, and in Him is no darkness.”  And, we are to reflect that light into the dark world!
