A Charlie Brown Christmas
“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, and good will toward men. Luke 2: 8-14
I don’t believe anyone could say it any better than Linus!
Love and Christmas blessings to all……

p.s. Here is something to pray about and ponder during the Holidays….. Please notice how the angel was all inclusive when he spoke of the coming of Christ…. The good tidings of great joy were to ALL people and not an exclusive elite few. The arrival of Jesus brought peace and good will toward ALL mankind. The cult of Christianity over the years has made Jesus very small and exclusive….. the truth is that Jesus is much larger and inclusive than we can even imagine. Christ’s birth, life, death and resurrection bridged the great chasm between all “men” and God. In Christ we are all restored. It is now time to walk in that truth and share the love, truth, grace and mercy of Jesus with whosoever will.
