LIGHT UP THE DARKNESS 2020
Beginning now through December 13, we're inviting everyone at Highlands to "Light Up the Darkness" through simple acts of compassion and kindness. This year we're inviting people to do this together with others. Here's how it works:
1) Choose a project you can be part of, or person to bless [talk about it as a small group, as a family, with a friend, etc.] We have a number of ideas listed below as a starting point but you are free to come up with something different!
2) Capture photos or videos (so we can share those on Christmas Eve!) and tell us about what happened in a sentence or two using the button below (remember, we need your submission by December 13!)
Light Up the Darkness Ideas:
