The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has launched its annual Christmas campaign with the team Light the World with love this year.
“Jesus Christ is the light of the world,” said Elder Marcus B. Nash, a General Authority Seventy. “Those who follow Him live with light, joy and hope—even in dark times (John 8:12). As we remember His birth this Christmas season, let us also remember His exemplary life and the things He taught us.”
“We can hold up His light by doing what He did: to love God and love our neighbor by lifting up those who are down, helping fulfill the needs of those in want, and comforting those who hurt,” added Elder Nash. “Doing this will cause His light to shine in and through us and will bring light and peace to our troubled world one person at a time. We invite everyone—everywhere—to join us in celebrating His birth and to Light the World with Love.”
Similar to last year, a series of charitable activities and challenges will be recommended as Saints countdown to Christmas day.
A new children’s calendar will be introduced to involve the children in sharing the spirit of Christmas.
In addition, the popular Light the World Giving Machines are back this year in 10 cities across the United States for people to donate to dozens of local and global charity organizations during the Christmas season.
