"For many, 2020 has been a dark year – physically, emotionally, mentally, financially. People have lost their loved ones, their jobs, their security and their health. Does this mean Christmas should be cancelled? No. The real Christmas happens in the darkness.
One of the most famous of all Christmas verses is written by the prophet Isaiah, predicting a Christmas to come:
The people walking in darkness
have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness
a light has dawned."
