7. The Story

All of a sudden, they felt something electrifying in the air. An Angel of the Lord appeared before them and the glory of the Lord shone all around. They were terrified
“Do not be afraid. I bring you amazing news – full of great joy for everyone. Today in the Royal city of Bethlehem, God’s promised King has been born. He has come to rescue the world. Go have a look for yourself. You will know it is Him because you will find him wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”

Suddenly, the sky lit up with a whole army of angels singing praise to God:
“Glory to God in the highest ~ This is is the day God brings peace to you, your loved ones and neighbours! This is the day God’s gentle love breaks through in a new way!”
