Jesus stepped into our darkness and declared "I am the light of the world"

Without light, we're a mess, scared and in danger. We need light to live safely and rightly with the world, with each other and with God. When Jesus, the light of the world, stepped into our darkness, he dealt with it once and for all and showed us how much we need his light.

This short, illustrated animation is a helpful alternative to Halloween, designed to be downloaded for free and shared on social media as a bite-size message to engage your local community online with Jesus the light of the world.
