As we prepare for the birth of Jesus, we will be reminded in the powerful words from "Hark! The Herald Angel's Sing!" that Jesus does bring life and light to all. This Advent, we use the theme "light and life to all he brings."
Jesus came to bring light to replace darkness, life to replace death and healing to replace the power of sin through his death and resurrection.
