We know that the shepherds were afraid.
Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified . . .
What did the shepherds do to feel braver?
They acted on their faith.
Do the same among your family.
- Look for God. (See here for help in tying this quest to Christmas.)
- Tell the faith stories!
For help in how to talk to your children about the tragedy in Newtown, CT, Mr. Rogers says it best: Look for the helpers.
