Light in the Darkness
The world is changing fast. The previously unimaginable has become commonplace, and responses to the Church can even seem hostile. It’s unsettling, yet Daniel offers us a model for not only surviving, but actually thriving in the midst of a chaotic world. His hope, humility and wisdom can serve as a blueprint to help us be a light in the darkness.
