Time for a GOOD story!

With so much doom and gloom and evil in the world, I am so excited whenever I can bring you a story like this.

The LIGHT and LIFE of Jesus Christ and the Nativity Scene has overtaken Times Square this week in a stunning display.

You have to see this….

What an awe-inspiring sight it was to be right in the heart of Times Square in New York City during the special Christmas display and celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

It was a wonderful kick-off to the Christmas season to look up and witness scenes of the nativity, images of the Savior, displays of the giving machines, and the #LightTheWorld logo on the digital billboards in this iconic location.

We are grateful for the many interfaith leaders and charities who are working with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to help those in need. We want the world to know of the peace that comes from following Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is the light of the world. Let us follow Him as we try to light the world and share the light of Christ in our own small ways this Christmas season.

Yes, the display was put up by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and yes I don’t agree with all of Mormon theology, but for right now anyone who puts Jesus Christ on display throughout all of Times Square is ok in my book for this event!

I’m going to go with Luke 9:50 in this case: “For he that is not against us is for us.”

Here are more details, from The Church News:

In the flash of a second, just as the evening holiday crowds began to gather on Times Square on Monday, Nov. 27, the iconic digital billboards went dark.

When they lit up again, they were filled with images of Jesus Christ and His birth and a global invitation for all to light the world: “This Christmas share His light by letting your light shine.”

Then, front and center, on the top sign in the heart of the square, a huge star appeared.

As the process unfolded, the crowds in the boisterous and bustling location quieted.

In a place where many tune out the advertising, it was special to see people stop and take note, said Cameron Kelly. The message “had a lot of love in it. … To see depictions and the Nativity in the epicenter of the center of the universe felt amazing.”

It is easy to get caught up in things that are trivial, he continued. “So to see something meaningful and eternal in this space … felt hopeful.”

The Times Square Nativity display, which lasted 30 minutes, was part of the Light the World initiative of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The digital billboards featured stars, the Nativity, the Light the World logo and the logos of many charitable organizations working with the Church on the campaign. The billboard takeover followed the global launch of the 2023 Light the World Giving Machines campaign earlier in the day.

As the Nativity was reflected in Times Square, Nasario Martin, an evangelical Christian from Guatemala, could not believe his eyes. He took out his cellphone and started recording.

“I have never seen Jesus Christ in such a place before,” he said, referencing the power of the prominent message as the Christmas season begins.

“There are no words,” added Denika Torres. “It was magical.”
