Have you ever felt like an outsider? How does God feel about the person on the outside looking in? Luke’s gospel reminds us that the angelic army came proclaiming peace first to the shepherds in the fields outside of Bethlehem. As a group, shepherds owned a bad reputation. Ceremonially defiled, sometimes sheep rustling, they were not highly regarded in Judea. But in heaven, it was a different story. God came first to them to remind all of us who have ever been alienated that he has not forgotten us. Welcome to worship with Tallowood!
