I urge all FReepers to take a moment to remember the "reason" for the season; our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Merry Christmas to all.

Thank you for the reminder.
Now please forgive me for hijacking this thread, because there may be someone here to point me in the right direction.

I've been looking for the source of a tale. It may possibly be an old Holy Land urban legend. Story is about the shepherds on the first Christmas. Their "specialty" was in the flock they were keeping watch over, "unblemished" or something like that for Temple sacrifice. I remember something about why the Angels made the first announcement to shepherds was to tell them their jobs were going to end. {They now had The Lamb of God}

Anyone ever heard this story?

The very first time I heard this bible passage, when I was very young, was from of this character:

To this day, it still strikes me of one of the warmest and most comforting passages in the bible....much like Linus' blanket.

There is a little bit missing, but it is important.

the traslation above is WEB. Other translations have just a little more reference to whom is blessed.

Luke 2:14

"Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men in whom he is well pleased." (ASV)


Peace to whomever God is pleased with.
