Hymn: What a Friend We Have in Jesus
Theme: The Body of Christ
Topic: Jesus the Light of the World
Reading: Isaiah 61:10-11, 62:1-3
1. How will you describe Christ as the Light of the world?
2. What are the lessons for us in Luke 2:22-40 regarding Christ as the Light of the world?
3. In what ways can we let the light of Christ shine through us?
Closing Prayer (Collect for First Sunday after Christmas)
Almighty God, you have shed upon us the new light of your incarnate Word. May this light, enkindled in our hearts, shine forth in our lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
