Christmas at Northwestern: A Light in the Darkness

“A Light in the Darkness” will share in music and narration the light-filled Christmas story. As light will return after winter, the Light of the Son will outshine the darkness of the world bringing with it new life. Jesus is the Light of the World who was born among us, and His Light will overcome our darkness. “The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned” (Matthew 4:16, NIV).
