The Lantern

The two laws of the latern:

(1) Don’t hide it under a bushel.

(2) An empty lantern gives little light.

No matter how bright, how confident, how flickering — we need your light.

And, because we need your light, we need you to keep your lantern full. Very, very rarely in this life do we actually go out in a blaze of glory, let alone in a sensible way.

A well-supplied lantern can show a lot more of the path than a bonfire.
