President Russell M. Nelson invited members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to spread the light of Christ to transform lives during a special Christmas message broadcast released this morning.
He began by acknowledging the hardships of the past two years relating to the COVID-19 pandemic and said this trial is an opportunity to serve more this holiday season to relieve others’ burdens.
The three-minute video featured audio from President Nelson and showed a montage of scenes, starting with happy families celebrating Christmas before moving on to show individuals suffering from homelessness and loss during the Christmas season. People are then shown helping others by giving hugs, leaving kind messages on doors and giving blankets to the homeless.
“When so many around us are burdened with fear and uncertainty, I invite you to make room in your heart for those around you who may be struggling to see the light of the Savior and to feel His love,” President Nelson said in the video.
He reminded viewers that no physical gift means as much as sharing acts of love with those who are struggling.
“These are gifts that remind us and them of the true reason for the season: the gift of God’s Son, Jesus Christ, who was born to cast out all fear and bring everlasting light and joy to all who follow him,” President Nelson said. “I wish you, my beloved friends, a very Merry Christmas and a joyful season of helping others see and feel the light of Jesus Christ.”

Guillermo Del Toro Says Working With Bradley Cooper on ‘Nightmare Alley’ Changed His Life
Guillermo del Toro might not be the most prolific director of our time, nor is he consistent with his films in terms of objective quality, but you can always be sure that his stories will always center around the most bizarre and absurd circumstances imaginable, giving way to a sense of originality that few other filmmakers bother with today. For the creative’s latest Nightmare Alley, which came out to somewhat mixed reviews a while ago, Bradley Cooper and Cate Blanchett were the stars who did most of the heavy lifting with their performances.
And while both of these are highly-acclaimed thespians in their own right, it seems that getting the opportunity to work with the former, in particular, has been a life-changing experience for del Toro. In a recent interview with TheWrap magazine, the director discussed working with the American Sniper star, revealing that he almost saw Cooper as his peer rather than an actor playing a part in his film.

One of Nicolas Cage’s Stupidest Action Movies Hunts Netflix Success
Nicolas Cage has made a lot of stupid movies in his career, but it would be very unfair to suggest that any of his onscreen efforts to have ticked that box are inherently terrible.
Of course, titles like Bangkok Dangerous, Next, Left Behind, and Trespass are indisputably awful, but some have managed to strike that sweet spot between ridiculousness and entertainment. Even the blockbuster National Treasure duo are dumb as hell, but that doesn’t mean they’re not a whole lot of fun.
