Stake Youth Leaders lit the path with luminaries. Two bonfires were ablaze. Hot chocolate and s'mores were there, aplenty. The youth were surrounded by sounds of crackling wood, friendly laughter, waves crashing and a bongo drum drumming. Father Lester Mackenzie, of St. Mary's Episcopal Church in Laguna Beach, and Laguna Niguel Stake Young Men's President, Bryan Thacker, shared messages of inclusion as they encouraged the youth to step up to be like Christ. Sparklers, glow sticks, and calendars were passed out to the youth with the hope that they will Light the World with 25 acts of service in 25 days.
The teachings of Jesus Christ show us a pattern of service for our lives. Apply these 25 teachings over the 25 days of Christmas to brighten the world around you. These calendars can be found at Mormon.org.
