As we gather around the manger with the Magi, we do so with a sense of eager anticipation. For as the birdsong heralds a new day at the rising of the sun, so does the song of the angels herald a new day at the rising of the star: a new day of justice; a new day of peace; a new day of love. The promise of the Magi is that dawn is coming. All we have to do is lie still and listen for the song, and we will be well on our way to a new heaven and a new earth.
