Hark the herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!
Peace on earth and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled"
What a moving story of enemies who became friends. They were reconciled for those moments in the Christmas Truce. What is far more amazing, and much longer lasting, is the reconciliation between God and sinners, brought about by the life and death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This Christmas let us sing and celebrate the gift of reconciliation.
