Choir of ANGELS

Ever heard angels sing, if you've been to a Mormon Tabernacle Choir Concert you have. Yesterday we were able to attend the Sunday Broadcast from the Conference Center in SLC, Utah. The Orchestra at Temple Square also played favorite CHRISTmas carols from around the world and ended with "Oh Come All Ye Faithful" which brought tears to many eyes with the sustained volume of fine tuned voices and spirited rendition that could be the theme of everyone's holiday celebration as we review the story of the Savior's miraculous birth to earth and His life.

From the spoken word by Lloyd Newell..."No matter where we live, our hearts can draw near to Bethlehem and to the newborn babe who brought good tidings of great joy to the whole world. As we think of that silent, holy night, we yearn for the serenity of Bethlehem. So much of our life today is noisy, confusing and busy...Yet for one small moment, the world stopped, a star shone, a choir of angels sang, and heaven came to earth. Christmas invites us to hear again the sweet sounds of love and feel the quiet assurances of peace that once settled on the little town of Bethlehem... " May you feel that peace in your heart amidst the hustle and bustle of Christmas celebrations with your family.
