light-world-lds-christmas-2017For the 2017 Christmas season, the Church encourages us to “Light the World” with the message of our Savior Jesus Christ. You are invited to prayerfully consider how you can follow the example of the Savior and share the Light of Jesus Christ with others during the Christmas season.

This is a continuation of the theme from last year. A new video for 2017 will be available beginning Friday, November 24, 2017.

Serve 25 Ways in 25 Days

Each day, will feature a teaching of the Savior with a brief video showing an example of the teaching in practice, along with service ideas.

Resources to Share With Others

Share your experiences on social media using the hashtag #LIGHTtheWORLD so that others can learn about the “good news” of the Savior’s birth, His life, and His Atonement.

As in previous years, the Church will provide the following supporting resources: a video; service ideas and videos; images for social media; a calendar to help plan ward, youth, and family activities; pass-along cards; and posters. These resources are available at

Also available on that page is a short overview for ward councils and members to view. A notice sent yesterday to ward leaders suggests that this overview could be used as part of a fifth-Sunday discussion in October. Families, youth groups, and ward councils could consider possible service activities.
