Roma Downey: God is Light

When Roma Downey and husband Mark Burnett produced “The Bible” miniseries in 2013, it was a “blockbuster” hit on the History Channel! Just the beginning of their bringing the Bible to national audiences. And they’ve just launched --a digital content destination—with a reminder from 1 John 1:5: that “God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.”, a verse with great meaning for Roma!

"I lost my mother at a very young age. To comfort me when I went away to college, my widowed father told me that no matter where I went in the world the same moonlight is shining down on me. To this day the moon is a constant reminder of not just my father, but my heavenly Father—of God’s presence in my life."
