FACESOFDEVOTION: Light Up December
The word "advent" means "coming" – the coming of Jesus Christ to our world. More than 2,000 years ago, Mary waited to bring Him, the Light of the world, to all people. She knew that to dispel darkness, we needed light. Watch the video to see how she brought a different kind of light to the earth in 1830.
