“And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.
An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they
were terrified. But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that
will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the
Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.’
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.’”
May God’s peace rest on each of you and your families this Christmas season, and your New Year be filled with hope and promise!
