God Does Some of His Best Work at Night

Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, November 5th and most of us are not happy about it – though apparently not enough of us to change the annual inconvenience. Even before that dramatic marker, the loss of daylight hours creeps up upon us from August on. Less light for outside work. More night time driving. Some suffer depression from the depravation of natural light and many of us grumble.

While I would not try to talk us out of the instincts of our bodies and brains, I would like to offer this solace: God seems to do some of God’s best work at night. The Bible is filled with stories of God’s intervention in human affairs to bring about wisdom, rescue, and hope in the nighttime hours. This November in the worship we’re going to look at some of the great nights from the Bible. Fueled by that extra hour of sleep on the first Sunday, I hope you will join us.
