The Christophers is an inspirational Christian group that was founded in 1945 by Father James Keller.
They preached a doctrine of religious tolerance and intended their teachings to be relevant to people of all faiths.
The motto of The Christophers is: “It’s better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.” The motto emphasizes positive action to move forward with a grateful heart and create a better world when faced with hardships, painful change, and uncertain times.
Although it may be easier to curse the darkness and stay mad, give up, and become a victim of your situation, easier does not always mean better. Most often, in fact, the better thing to do is to light the candle and not stay mad for long, keep pushing forward, and look to make your situation better.
Curse the darkness and stay in the dark.
Light the candle and find your way out.
