Light

A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.  Proverb

He was a burning and a shining light.   John 5:35

You might have noticed the candles and fireside scene in our display windows this past week.

The theme is subtle, maybe, but there.  Both feature light that draws us in — the candle in the window signaling safe sanctuary for travelers, a celebratory birth announcement, or maybe hope for a loved one’s return; the fireside signaling the contemplative moments, the times we’re drawn into ourselves or the stories of others.

We hear over and over that Et Cetera is more than just a thrift store.  We offer light in many ways to many people.  We built these window displays to remind ourselves of our greater task–to welcome and be light to all, to honor the seasons of reaching out and reaching in.

And we built these displays to express our love for our community.
