    Silas Marner

    November 06, 2019


    In George Elliot's Silas Marner, the title character has lost his faith in humanity and divine power. But as he allows himself to make human connections and finds new faith in God after a terrible experience, he discovers joy and contentment that had escaped him before. When we are faced with darkness, we can drive it away not by shutting out the love of God and our fellow men, but by reaching toward the light that comes from the Lord.
