Christmas Light

Christmas Light

We love the bright colored lights of Christmas breaking up the extended darkness of winter. They point to the much greater Light revealed at Christmas that shatters a darkness far deeper and more crushing to the human spirit than a Minnesota winter. Join us this December as we look to the stories surrounding Jesus’ birth and reflect on the Christmas Light that can brighten our lives and our world.
