Many, many years ago King George VI addressed the British Commonwealth on New Year’s Eve at the turn of a moment in history where the whole world was standing on the brink of uncertainty. Despondency was in the air, and people did not know to whom they could turn. As he closed his message, unknown to him his body

itself was being racked by cancer. Before that year was over, his life was going to be lost.



With all of the uncertainty of the world and the unknowing of his own physical maladies, he uttered these memorable words:


I said to the man at the gate of the year,

"Give me a light that I might walk safely into the unknown."

And he said to me, "Walk out into the darkness

And put your hand into the hand of God,

And it shall be to you safer than the light

And better than the known."


God knows what is in the darkness.
