Angels In August

On a rocky, terraced hillside near Bethlehem, pilgrim David read to us about Ruth and Boaz, Saul and David, and, from Luke's gospel, about the angels' announcement of Jesus's birth. It's thought the shepherds were gathered in this very field. On a hot afternoon in August, we sang "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear," including this call to warring humankind: "O hush the noise and cease your strife and hear the angels sing!"
