Good news of great joy

After seeing Jesus, the shepherds told everyone what had happened and what the angel had said to them about this child.Luke 2:16-17

Imagine one of the shepherds going home and telling his family about his night. Imagine the story those guys told at the pub and at the synagogue. At Christmas families and friends gather to celebrate the same news of great joy the angels had for the shepherds. What a perfect time to tell our own manger stories- that time when we realized that the “tidings of great joy” was personal and would change everything forever. My manger story started when I was about 15.

Thank you for my own joyful Christmas story.
