Merry Christmas from Mennonite Mission Network! This animation tells the story of the angel's announcement to the shepherds that the Christ-child has come. Can you imagine how wonderful—and terrifying—that encounter must have been?

 

 

Spoiler alert—the shepherds weren't the only ones shocked by these events. A certain wool-clad creature gets overwhelmed by the excitement as well.  

Please pass this on to your family and friends with e-mail or Facebook, using the sharing buttons at the top of the page.

And keep your eye out for the appearance of angels in your life.
