Preparations were made and decorations were put up in the church yesterday in preparation for Christmas. The trees were strung with lights, poinsettias were placed throughout the church and the stable was erected.
Mary and Joseph wait in the stable at the manger, an angel hovers above them crying, "Gloria in excelsis" and the shepherds have already arrived:
I wonder, what do the shepherds know? They know that their salvation is at hand and so they wait at the manger.
Where we are we waiting?
