On the Feast of the Epiphany

The Work of Christmas Begins!
I love this! ...a beautiful reflection as we come upon the 12th Day of Christmas... 
written by Howard Thurman...
The feast of Epiphany January 6th brings the Christmas season to an end. To mark the day, here’s a litany called “Now the Work of Christmas Begins” composed by Howard Thurman, an African-American theologian, educator, and civil rights leader.
When the song of the angels is stilled,
when the star in the sky is gone,
when the kings and princes are home,
when the shepherds are back with their flocks,
the work of Christmas begins:
to find the lost,
to heal the broken,
to feed the hungry,
to release the prisoner,
to rebuild the nations,
to bring peace among the people,
to make music in the heart.
