If peace is something we long for, love is something we have watered down. The word seems to be thrown around without meaning.

However, the season of Christmas, of Advent, reminds us of the greatest example of love, the sacrificial gift of life.

In this third week of Advent, the theme is 'love.' Love that came down from God through His son and was announced to the world through unlikely messengers...Shepherds.

That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep.  Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified. Luke 2:8-9
