Angel Choir...

Good morning Team,

LUKE 2:8-14

8And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. 12This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."
13Suddenly a great CHOIR of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and SINGING, 14"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."

Of all the wonders of Christmas, I think this is my favorite. I love a good choir! Thank you Owego Naz Worship Choir for leading us yesterday to proclaim, "Joy to the World! The Lord has come!" Each of you has helped our congregation to worship our Lord this Christmas season.

The angel choir... from now on as I imagine this wonder at Christmas time, I will see Anna Contas as a part of that multitude...singing joyfully, in perfect pitch, with a huge smile. Her untimely death saddens me. I will miss Anna's wonderful spirit.

Merry Christmas!
