"When the song of the angels is stilled..."
"When the song of the angels is stilled, when the star in the sky is gone... the work of Christmas begins."
So goes "The Work of Christmas", a poem written by author, philosopher, theologian, educator, and civil rights leader Howard Thurman.
Here is the poem set to music and performed at Lessons and Carols at our church last December 7, 2018. May it accompany your prayer throughout the remainder of the Christmas season, and in the year to come.
