At Christmas we often focus on the joy of Jesus’s birth and can forget the challenges, suffering and fear experienced during His life. This song was written reflecting on the plight of refugees and asylum seekers in Australia and is about hope. Hope that light can shine in the dark.
Many people, in Australia and other parts of the world, experience suffering, grief and terrible injustices throughout their lives, and for many people Christmas can be a very difficult day. At Christmas we are reminded to think about those who have lost hope and what we as a community can do to help.
