5. The Shepherds and the Angels


So on the very first Christmas on a hillside outside Bethlehem, the local shepherds were watching their sheep. Just then everything changed as an Angel of the Lord appeared and the glory of the Lord shone all around. Heaven’s joy was spilling out, but the Shepherds were terrified.

The Angel said: “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news – full of great joy for everyone. Today in the Royal city of Bethlehem, the Life-Saver has been born to you. This boy is God’s promised Son. Go have a look for yourself. You will know it is Him as you will find the baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”
Suddenly, the sky lit up with a whole cascade of angels, hundreds of angels singing with God’s praises: “Glory to God in the highest ~ This is all about peace to you, your families, your loved ones and neighbours! Peace for this planet! This is all about God coming to you, his abundant, amazing love!”
