Christmas- Through the Eyes of the Shepherds
A survey revealed that the character people most often identify with in the birth narrative is the shepherds. These ordinary men, who were often regarded as outsiders within their culture, were chosen by God for an encounter with the angels and a visit to see the newborn baby Jesus. They went on to spread the news to everyone possible. The Christmas story through the shepherds eyes is a powerful way to invite ordinary people to come and see Jesus and share him with others this Christmas.
