“Shepherds in the fields abiding
Watching over your flocks by night
God with man is now residing
Yonder shines the Infant light
Come and worship, come and worship
Worship Christ the newborn King”
(Angels from the Realms of Glory)
God with man is now residing.
Mull on that for a while and let your mind be blown. God comes and moves into the neighbourhood, God makes his dwelling place with us. Light comes into the darkness. Hope is born in the most unusual of settings.
