Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the greater Chattanooga area wrapped up 2020 by participating in the #LightTheWorld campaign and are taking the challenge to light 2021.
#LightTheWorld, according to officials, “is a worldwide movement to touch hearts and change lives by doing the things Jesus did: feeding the hungry, comforting the lonely, visiting the sick and afflicted, and showing kindness to everyone. As Jesus said, ‘Ye are the light of the world…Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven’” (Matthew 5:14, 16).
“Each year during the Christmas season, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints makes a monumental effort to spread the message and mission of #LightTheWorld,” providing daily service prompts to transform Christmas into a season of service. “However, you can do it all year by thinking about who you can serve each and every day,” officials state at ComeUntoChrist.org.
“To turn the challenge to light the world every day into a New Year’s resolution,” anyone can click on Count Me In at https://www.comeuntochrist.org/light-the-world-2020/dec-26-light-2021 because, as officials continue, “the hope we can find through Jesus Christ is bigger than any one month – or year, for that matter. We’re all hoping for a brighter 2021. And we can make that hope a reality as we resolve to use every day as an opportunity to light the world just as Jesus did.”
The movement is free. Sign up for daily service prompts. Invite others to do the same. Together, we can #LightTheWorld and Share His Light.
