LDS Church Launches Christmas Initiative, "He Is the Gift" 

Beginning November 28th, social media airwaves will be flooded with this special message from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

"For God so loved the world," and so loved you... and every single one of us. He gave His Son. He is Christmas. He is the Gift. This Christmas season, discover the gift, embrace the gift, share the gift.

Christmas is a time of releflection on what we can become because of the sacred gift. As we discover the gift, we learn of the immeasurable love of God and our absolute need for the Saviour. As we embrace the gift, we strengthen our faith in Jesus Christ and desire to be more like Him. As we share the gift, we follow in the Master's footsteps, who invited all to hear His message. (Elder Russel M Nelson, December 2014 Ensign.) 

#ShareTheGift this Christmas season!
