The Angels of Christmas


Few religious symbols stir our imaginations like angels: guardian angels, heavenly messengers, signs of peace and hope. Nowhere in the bible is there a greater concentration of angels than in the stories of Advent and Christmas, and in this story they do precisely what we long for angels to do today: they guide and direct, they transform people’s vision, they advise and inform, and they protect and encourage. An old and disbelieving priest, a frightened young woman and her shocked fiancé, and lowly shepherds: their encounters with angels changed their lives and ours. In this sermon series we will explore the coming of Christ through the eyes of angels to discover whether God might be speaking to us today.
