The Work of Christmas
Years ago we received a Christmas card with this quote on it by Howard Thurman. Since then it has been a part of the decorations we put up/out each year.
It serves as a helpful reminder of the meaning of Christmas.
When the song of the angels is still,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flock,
The work of Christmas begins:
To find the lost,
To heal broken,
To feed to hungry,
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace among our sisters and brothers.
