For a guy who is always on the alert for law and gospel sightings in the world, how about this one? Yesterday, in the annual ritual of untangling the strings of outdoor lights and attempting to drape them over the shrubbery before my hands and feet freeze, an amazing thing happened: ALL the strings of lights worked! I'm quite sure this has never happened before. There actually was one rogue half string of lights that didn't work for a time, but seeing all of their buddies cooperating this year, they too decided to work after all. I'm quite sure this event does not arise to gospel status, that is to say, it is not an appearance of the Christ amongst us, but just look how they repel the darkness!
