Elder Bednar On What “Fundamentally Changed the Church” Last Year


Last year’s Christmas campaign #LIGHTtheWORLD was so successful that the church has decided to again go with the theme “Light the World.” Elder Bednar after having seen the impact that #LIGHTtheWORLD from last year had stated that “Light the World” had “fundamentally changed the church.”

The ‘Light the World’ Christmas initiative will reach worldwide audiences beginning Friday, November 24, and will run through Christmas Day, December 25,”

Remarking on the success from last year’s campaign he stated that “It was simple, it was engaging because people were invited to do simple things that helped them realize the true meaning of Christmas. The central focus of this campaign was to share the light and the love of the Savior in simple meaningful ways with those who are immediately around us. Our hope was that people would not simply learn more about the Savior but that they would learn about Him by doing what He did. 25 Days in 25 Ways.”

The goal is to have members from around the world to “do” the things that Jesus taught and help those around them.

Just as they did last year, you can share a wealth of online content from mormon.org, including the video that is posted below from Youtube. Just as they did last year, this year they will have another Advent calendar “In 25 Ways, Over 25 Days” that highlights a different principle each day.

So what will you do this year to help #LIGHTtheWORLD?
