Let Your Light Shine: 2019-2020 Program Book

Twelve monthly programs explore biblical passages of light from the Old and New Testaments. The study will challenge and encourage as you explore biblical understandings of being God's light in the world as Christ's disciples. You will also be to shine a light on issues that crush and marginalize God's children and challenge systems and powers of darkness and evil, while being emboldened with hope to practice justice in the world.
