“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” ~ Jesus (John 8:12)
Not a decoration, but a symbol.
This tree is a symbol testifying that no amount of darkness can overcome the light and love of Jesus for you, for me, and for all of humanity. It speaks to the hope that came down that first Christmas and offers to come anew to each and everyone of us this Christmas. It’s a tree of hope.
Not just a symbol but an invitation too.
Our Tree of Hope serves not only as a symbol of light, but also as an invitation to share in Hope for all who will visit or pass through our campus. Beside the tree will be a sign inviting others to join in our Christmas Miracle offering this year which will be to support the ongoing ministry of the Homeless Coalition of Cherokee County of which The Way is a founding and active partner along with several other local churches. You will be hearing more about the Homeless Coalition and the hope we are extending to those experiencing homelessness within our community throughout this Advent season.
Help be a part of the miracle and share in hope. Feel free to come and pray at the foot of the tree, or snap a picture or two, and help spread the Hope found not in these lights but in The Light to which they point – Jesus!
