Sermon of December 11, 2011–“What Angels Don’t Say”

The Annunciation by Botticelli. Public domain.
Scripture Reading: Luke 1:26-38. A few years ago I realized how totally unique the birth stories of Jesus are in the Gospels. There’s a challenge to anyone who wants to read the Gospels as a narrative–what happens to the angels? Sure, they are there at Christ’s birth but then what? Angels are absent from most of the Gospel narrative from the birth until the resurrection. How does one live life in between those times? What Angels Don’t Say

The illustration about holding the rock lightly came from the excellent book Congregational Fitness by Denise Goodman.
