From the artist:

In this piece, I wanted to highlight the different responses one might have to an angel appearing and saying, “Do not be afraid.” I imagine the responses would range from a joyful, “Woah! Look at that! Isn’t it beautiful?” to a terrified, “Grab the sheep! Run away! Be afraid, be very afraid!” Don’t we all have our own unique way of responding to God radically showing up in our lives?

I think it’s soberingly true and almost funny that after the angels’ chorus subsides, the shepherds decide they need to hurriedly “confirm” what the Lord had just revealed to them in a dramatic, shimmering, musical fashion. Sometimes we need more tangible evidence of God’s movement in the world. Sometimes we need what we have been told to be in line with what we see. In the midst of the dissonance of this world and God’s promises, I hope we can step out in faith more often and trust that the promises of God hold true and everything will happen just as we’ve been told.
