A reflection to keep with you as you continue to keep the spirit of Christmas alive during the year with your family, friends and each other.
When the song of the angels is stilled,
when the star in the sky is gone,
when the kings and princes are home,
when the shepherds are back with their flocks,
the work of Christmas begins:
to find the lost,
to heal the broken in spirit
to feed the hungry,
to release the oppressed,
to rebuild the nations,
to bring peace among the people,
to make music in the heart.
-Howard Thurman, The Mood of Christmas (modified)
