We wrote on the boxes of the light bulbs simple messages about light in darkness… And then went to find the 7 people who they were for.
Now, give me an opportunity to give away hundreds of ‘things’ and talk to hundreds of people, and I’m happy! Just restricting our afternoon to meeting just 7 is a difficult thing for me to do. It means relying on hunches and prompts from The Spirit to go and meet the people that I feel led to.
And wow, we found 7 people each of whom we felt had been a God-incidence. One person needed a light bulb replacing in their kitchen that had broken that morning, another had lots of questions about faith, another felt the message was for him. Every one of the 7 we met and offered bulbs to connected with the simple gesture.
Each one of the encounter’s were very different and we had varying conversations with each person. It was such a simple thing to do, yet turned out to be deeply profound for those we met and also for us.
