Watch 2021 Luz De Las Naciones (Light Of The Nations) Is Nov. 20

Wednesday, November 17, 2021
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, including the Chattanooga congregation, invites everyone to tune in to the 2021 Luz de las Naciones (Light of the Nations) program, an annual international display of Latino culture that promotes “hope and endurance during difficult times.”  
 
The broadcast will be shown on Saturday at 9 p.m. The show may be viewed at ChurchofJesusChrist.org, Luzdelasnaciones.org, YouTube and Facebook.  
 
According to officials, the celebration “will feature a cast of hundreds of volunteer singers and dancers, many of whom will perform in traditional clothing from cultures and countries throughout Latin America, with the theme ‘A Light for Everyone.’”
 
As Elder Walter F.
Gonzalez of the Seventy said, “The theme is a message in itself because we need that light or even a glimpse of light of hope in these turbulent days.”
 
Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of The Twelve Apostles will be the concluding speaker.  He will offer a pre-recorded message and the program will be a virtual event, due to the ongoing pandemic.  
 
“Luz de Las Naciones” originated in 2002 and always includes Christ-themed messages.
