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...."
The shepherds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about."
So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.

Drop By the Blog, Leave a Comment. At my weblog, "Get Anchored," every Sunday I post a new "Song of the Week" (A new series on Advent continues with "Little Drummer Boy" by Jars of Clay). Also, read Steven Furtick's rant about whiny church members, help from Lee Strobel for answering doubts about Christmas like the ones raised in the Statesman's op-ed piece Saturday, Part Two in a leadership series on the cure for cultural intimidation, and worship wonderings.
