And the Angels Sang

Benjamin, a shepherd boy, never tires of hearing his grandfather's account about when he, as a young shepherd himself, was there to witness angels appearing in the sky and announcing the birth of the Christ-child. It is a story Benjamin knows by heart and one he loves.

But this time Benjamin is surprised by what Grandfather says. On this night, Grandfather adds to his tale describing not only what he saw but also what he felt when he visited the stable to see the newborn baby. This leads Benjamin to question whether the angels' song of peace and goodwill really meant anything in a world that is still so full of hurt and violence.

Read to find out how Grandfather answers Benjamin's questions with a lesson that helps not only him to understand the meaning of it all but us as well.
