Sheep in Heavenly Peace

December 10, 2017 | 10:45 a.m. | Sanctuary
It’s a zoo out here! Bethlehem’s homes and inns may be bursting at the seams with travelers for the census, but because of the animals they brought with them, the stable is simply out of control. Camels, donkeys and goats up to the rafters! Even the normally-sleepy hillsides are now teeming with an abundance of sheep, and Bethlehem’s top temp agency must call on their most eager but often-inept family of workers, the Wooltons to step up and answer the call (temporary “staffing” takes on a whole new meaning!). What they expect to be an unglamorous assignment will soon put them face to face with the angel Gabriel, a sky-full of the Heavenly Host, and ultimately the Good Shepherd himself – Jesus!
