Reconnect One: AngelsDecember 14, 2018
I love Christmas hymns.
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,
Angels we Have Heard on High,
Angels from the Realms of Glory – three of my favorites.
At Christmas it seems many people in the culture are willing to embrace the possibility of radiant beings from the unseen realm breaking into human history to bear messages of all kinds. Throughout the Christmas story, angels appear in visions, dreams and in person. They appear individually to Zechariah, Mary, and Joseph and en masse to the shepherds as the heavenly host singing Glory to God in the Highest and declaring Peace through the Christ child born of a virgin. They also appear to the Wise Men to direct them to Jesus by the sign of the natal star.
Want to get God back into the conversation this Christmas? Why not start with the testimony of the angels from the realms of glory singing of the baby born in Bethlehem?
