Let There Be Light!

It was a night of spectacular lights and bizarre food combinations as our QCCC cell last Friday took us down a journey of unforgettable...taste bud sensations?

We started off the night with "the toaster game", where we put a slice of bread into a toaster and gathered around to answer a series of questions. If the toast popped up while someone was speaking, it meant drawing two random toppings from a bag and putting it together on your toast. Yum. Except people ended up with peanut butter and cheese, frosted flakes and ketchup, balsamic vinegar and bacon, honey and herbs...yikes.

 Aside from discovering some surprisingly delicious combinations (you might want to try peanut butter and cream cheese), we learned some interesting new things about one another—our favourite spot in Kingston, family traditions we would like to pass on, the strangest thing we have on our desk. After stuffing ourselves with bread, we went out on Tindall field for some phone light pictures! We braved the cold for the sake of art, and created some contemporary masterpieces. 

Just in time too, because later on in the night we learned about St. Lucy, the patron saint of the blind. The name "Lucy" means "light" and her sacrifice in life taught us where to find God in our darkest moments, even if we may be blind to his presence during our suffering. May St. Lucy continue to pray for us during this year ahead as we embark on this journey for Christ. Open our eyes to the light of God and the grace that comes with His love.
