The Beauty of the Story
Abbott Handerson Thayer (1849-1921)
"We hear the beating of wings over Bethlehem and
a light that is not of the sun or of the stars shines in the midnight sky. Let
the beauty of the story take away all narrowness, all thought of formal creeds.
Let it be remembered as a story that has happened again and again, to men of
many different races, that has been expressed through many religions, that has
been called by many different names. Time and space and language lay no
limitations upon human brotherhood."
