The Angels' Song

Thomas Guthrie (1803 - 1873)

All of the earthly trappings of a royal birth were absent from the birth of Jesus, yet the angels filled the heavens with the song "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth, peace, good will toward men." Join the angels around the manger to look in wonder on the birth of the Redeemer and to reflect on the peace that Jesus brings to the world of men.

The Rev. Thomas Guthrie was a 19th century Scotch Presbyterian minister who was an early advocate of the "ragged schools" movement. He wrote a number of devotional books reflecting the love for his Savior which motivated his lifelong work to provide education and training for the children of the poor. (Summary by MaryAnn)
