Ears to Hear

image

This morning in worship we sang the traditional Christmas carol “Angels We have Heard on High.” The opening chorus says;

“Angels we have on heard high
Sweetly singing ore the plains
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains

Gloria in excelsis Deo
Gloria in excelsis Deo”

As I joined my voice with others I reflected upon the words, “Angels we have heard.” and wondered; “have we heard, can we hear the angels?” With all the other voices screaming for our attention (including those in our own heads), spewing their opinions and rhetoric, a constant cacophony of sound and fury, it’s almost impossible to let angels tickle our ears, comfort our spirits, with words of peace, stillness and love.

Goodness, light, hope presently speak into the darkness which surrounds us. Do we possess the ears/spirits to hear them?

blessings,
