15th December. A Host of Heavenly Angels.
Our picture today is of what the shepherds saw in the night sky. “Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favour rests.’ When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, ‘Let us go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.’”
(Luke 2:13-15 NIVUK)
