“Glory to God in the Highest”

Text: Luke 2:8-20

As Handel moves in his musical from texts in the Old Testament to the New Testament, it is interesting what he chooses as his first text. It is not the announcement to Mary or Joseph ~ it is not the story of the birth of Christ Himself ~ but instead it is the divine announcements of angels to shepherds in their fields. We see something in this choice that represents the way God often works in the world ~ the highest being chooses to reveal Himself through that which is lowly.

Join us this Sunday as we explore the implications of this event for our own understanding of the Christmas story.
