Chris Pratt Reads Christmas Story from Luke at Disneyland's Candlelight Ceremony

Tré Goins-Phillips : Dec 4, 2018 : Faithwire.com

"It's been a very special and inspiring night. For me, being a parent has really changed my life in so many ways. And one of those ways is to understand, truly, the love that a father could have for a child." -Chris Pratt

Despite a culture that has turned its proverbial back on the bonafide meaning of Christmas—the birth of Jesus—Disneyland has maintained its deeply religious, annual ceremony, a celebration that began in [1955] when the park opened.

Last year's Christmas story was narrated by "Thor" star Chris Hemsworth. This year, the "Guardians of the Galaxy" actor shared the Scripture.

"Ladies and gentlemen, it was really my honor to share this beautiful Candlelight Ceremony with all of you," Pratt said. "It's been a very special and inspiring night. For me, being a parent has really changed my life in so many ways. And one of those ways is to understand, truly, the love that a father could have for a child."

Pratt went on to relate God's love for us to his own love for his son, who was in the audience. Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
