In her annual speech during the holiday season, Britain’s Queen Elizabeth concentrated on “what she called the light of the Christian faith in her annual Christmas message.” In her speech she confidently proclaimed her faith in Jesus Christ amongst the rise of ISIS in the Middle East.
She says, “The world has had to confront moments of darkness this year, but the Gospel of John contains a verse of great hope, often read at Christmas carol services: ‘The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it.'”
In her speech she didn’t make any reference to the Islamic attacks in 2015, but mentioned to her audience that Christianity’s unchanging message “was not one of revenge or violence but simply that we should love one another.”
She concluded by saying, “There are millions of people lighting candles of hope in our world today. Christmas is a good time to be thankful for them and for all that brings light to our lives.”
