Glory Filled Skies Station


Walk up on the stage (or as close as you can get) and let the images of the starry skies on the screen fill your view. Pause there for a few minutes. Breathe slowly and deeply. Take in the amazing images.

Take a silky cloth and release it within the “wind” circle so that it floats.


That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep. Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior-yes, the Messiah, the Lord-has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! …

Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others-the armies of heaven-praising God and saying,

“Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.”

Luke 2: 8-14

On the night of Jesus’ birth, something incredible happened in the skies above a group of humble shepherds. The angels proclaimed good news, singing praises to the newborn Jesus. Heaven couldn’t help but burst in to celebrate the best thing ever to have happened.

That good news of great joy means just as much today. It is news for all people, news that transforms us, restores all that is broken, brings peace to those who belong to God.

What is the best news that you’ve ever heard or the best news you could ever imagine hearing right now? How would that good news feel? How would it change things?

Now imagine angels racing from heaven to tell YOU the good news about Jesus. How does this news change things for you? How would you like to respond?
