Spiritual Message by Colin Amato, April 15, 2018
Scripture readings: Genesis 1:1-5, John1:1-14
When we are faced with negative things from outside of ourselves, and the darkness from within, do we try to use light to gain a sense of balance? Clarity? What does it look like to face our own Shadow? Swedenborg and Carl Jung both discussed the importance of transformation in this life, how might their words help us navigate dark times? Do modern movies, like Star Wars: The Last Jedi, inspire us to achieve balance?
