Let the sun shine in – Carolyn O'Neill

24 February, 2020

People continue to prove that despite the law; exploitation, murder, slavery and injustice exist. God, whose radiance shines like the sun requires humanity to act justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with him. Slavery was abolished almost 200 years ago and yet human trafficking has become a modern day epidemic, and so the instruction remains; do justice and be merciful. This work is an abstract response to the theme highlighting a stark contrast between dark and light; a vast sense of darkness attempting to obstruct the sun. The sun is a metaphor for God’s radiance and unwavering love for all people. To ‘let the sun shine in’ is to become mindful of the plight of the less fortunate.
