When I was new to Alaska, I would spend a lot of time gazing up at the heavens looking for the Northern Lights. I would drive out to the darkest places outside Anchorage to peer up into the sky hoping to catch a glimpse of them. But they eluded me.
It was that first Christmas in Alaska I recall reading the scripture on Christmas Eve. This time the words took on new meaning.
"The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. (Isaiah 9:2)"
