One night long ago an “angel” and a “great company of the heavenly host” praised God “in the highest” with an declaration of “Glory” to him and an announcement to some shepherds “on earth” of “peace to men on whom his favor rests”. These shepherds were “keeping watch” over their flocks in a field outside of the town of Bethlehem where Jesus had just been born and was “lying in a manger”. The report of this announcement and event is contained in the second chapter of the book of Luke verses 4-14 in the New Testament (NIV). It has been over 2000 years since this announcement was made, and for centuries these words and the story of this event and the accounts of Jesus’ life have been declared throughout the world, but there is little evidence of peace “on earth”. It would be good to experience some peace, but it doesn’t seem to be happening. What do you think makes for peace among men on earth? Let’s talk about this.
