This Little Light



We recently visited a local “cave” which was really an old rock quarry. Rocks were cut out of this to use in the magnificent Parlament that sits on the Danube River. Now that this “cave” is no longer used for mining, some people have “rented” a small room inside to grow mushrooms. The cool, damp, dark conditions are perfect for growing mushrooms. We never would have known about this if some locals in downtown Diosd didn’t whisk Monte away one afternoon to show him the little rooms inside. We’ve seen the cave many times but never went inside. I admit, I was a little apprehensive because it was completely dark inside, and we had to walk until we found the small light where the workers were. We were too late to get any fresh mushrooms, and they told us to come back at 8AM. We did get to share Christ with one of the workers – standing in the dark holding flashlights – and the reality is that this is what we are doing everyday. We are living in a spiritually dark, dark place, and are shining a little light into the darkness.

“I am the light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of LIFE.” John 8:!2
