Habersham School illumination 2016

The Habersham School – illumination 2016

In the darkest hour of the middle ages, when famine and plague and war had brought many people, groups and budding nations to their lowest point, a Latin phrase, born out of Christian hope, emerged. Post Tenebras Lux: After darkness, Light.

This phrase would be the heart’s rallying cry towards the deeper truth that God is always working to bring about the restoration of His created world. Always.

The Habersham School in Savannah is built around this mission, and illumination is the school’s annual event where the Habersham community and friends gather with new and old friends to celebrate this deeper truth.

Together with exceptional food and drink as well as fantastic silent and live auctions, illumination  gives the Habersham community and its friends an opportunity to relax in the midst of an early autumn evening and be a part of promoting the work being done through the school towards the mission of restoration.

The Habersham School community invites you to illumination this year!
