Sing Choirs of Angels!
November 23, 2011
As in past years I have used my favourite medium , men’s neckties, to make a decoration for the coming Christmas season.
This year was no exception.
I love how often the angelic crowd are mentioned in the biblical Christmas story, and so they have become, for our family one of the big symbols we associate with Christmas.
Every year we give the girls an angel each to hang on the tree, or sit on the mantle piece. It’s a reminder to them that God is much bigger than they can imagine, that there are things in this life they don’t yet understand and that we are all called to be messengers of the good news…… just like the angels were on the first Christmas.
My great friend Cathy McKay has written the poem this year, and I am so thankful to her for that.
Each angel comes with a printed poem for you to hang or use in your advent activities.
All for $12
Time weary waiting
On the long silent God to speak
Angel voices split cold, black silence
Saturating the void with glory
The dust-bound tremble, breaking under glory’s weight.
Fear flees with a word
God has left the glory of the highest
Slipping to the cold, dark earth
In the cold, black silence
Speaking, being, bringing peace.
