Food for the Road 17: Good news for all

Today’s offering is a simple one as the “festive frenzy” sets in: watch the (what I’ve been told by a few is actually quite nauseating) animated version of Joy to the world below – paying careful attention to the sheep.

What went through your mind when, in the midst of all the joy and wonder, the one sheep went out into the darkness to sit sadly and gaze out at the surrounding hills?

For me, I am struck in Luke’s retelling of the shepherd’s story by the fact that those people of the land who came and saw the Son of God in the cradle just had to share the news with the city folk who were unaware.

Today, I invite you to share in some small way, the joy you’ve been given in Christ with another.
