â€œAnd in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And an angel of the Lord appeared to them,
and the glory of the Lord shone around them,
and they were filled with great fear.
And the angel said to them,
â€œFear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy
that will be for all the people!â€
Canâ€™t you see the angel smiling?
This was God saying, â€œMerry Christmas!â€ to these sleepy, unsuspecting shepherds. How wonderful is it that the first ever Christmas greeting was given to a group so humble and meek as this? We in InnerCHANGE have the joy and privilege of keeping that tradition alive as we live and work in forgotten and marginalized places around the world.
We hope you enjoy our own Christmas greeting in this little video. So from our family to yours, Merry Christmas!
