Images of the roles in the modern Nativity text series for Christmas 2023 include the star, the baby Jesus in the manger and a stable animal.

The 2023 #LightTheWorld initiative invites all to find ways to “Let your light shine.”

Throughout December, individuals are encouraged to look for ways to share their light with someone else.

Like last year’s initiative, this year also has a list of 50 ideas to share light with others. A PDF can be downloaded on the English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French Light the World websites.

Modern Nativity text series

Daily text or WhatsApp reminders are available to inspire people by allowing them to be a part of someone’s Christmas story this year. Text LIGHT to 71234 or sign up through WhatsApp on the Spanish, Portuguese, and French Light the World websites.

Each message or text sends one of eight character roles from the Bible’s Nativity story, along with ideas for sharing light. Play each role by using the suggestions to help lift others. Then text back for another role.

Service shuffler

On, people can click the button in the online “service shuffler” to find ideas to share light. The sections include what to do, for whom, and when.

People are invited to take a screenshot of the service idea that comes up and then commit to it by adding to the online tracker of others who have done the same.
