Let Your Light Shine
“It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
There is a great deal of talk in all of the world’s faith traditions about “light.” Light guides our steps, illumines our hearts, dispels our worries, reveals the truth, and brings forth wisdom. At a very deep level, we hunger for the company of those who bring light into our lives.
In this spirit, we invite you to share your light with us at A Night Under One Sky, iACT’s beautiful fall fundraiser at the Umlauf Sculpture Gardens. It is an evening like no other on the Austin social calendar- and opportunity to join with a unique community of individuals all committed to lighting candles in this often dark world.
Join us, Tuesday, October 11, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m., for a sacred evening of dining and dialogue in celebration of the relationships we have and those we hope to build.
Tuesday, October 25 – 6pm
