Notes from Rotation.org's Writing Team Brainstorming Sessions
for their "Shepherds and Angels" lesson set (open to supporting members)
Been thinking about "shone around" from Luke2:9 "An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them"
GLORY = "SURROUNDING" Glory is a visual of "embracing." In Ps 8, God's glory is described as the nighttime sky which "crowns" us embraced, surrounds with glory and honor.
Of course, LIGHT can surround, but SOUND can also surround and embrace us and RESONATE within us, Perhaps that's what Luke 2's host of angels sounded like, and their message certainly resonated and reverberated.
So here's a Sound Science experiment idea
Wonder if we could create a BIG BOWL and have all the 'angels' surround it and SING a Xmas Hymn to make the shepherds/believers get moving? From God's voice to our mouths -- that's what the angels and shepherds were participating in.
How are YOU vibrating with the story this Advent?
