What is the purpose of a beacon? Beacons provide information for people. Beacons help guide boats and ships to their destinations. This is vital during foggy and stormy weather. Imagine, in the days before radar, being on the ocean during a storm and not knowing exactly where the coast and safety is located? Beacons, like this lit beacon in Thomas Kinkade’s jigsaw puzzle entitled Beacon of Hope would have given everyone on the vessel a great sense of hope that safety was not that far away if they only follow the light. As you and your loved ones work on this puzzle together, it would be a great time for you to share times in which you needed hope and received it.
