With the angelic host proclaim, “Christ is born in Bethlehem!”
— “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”
Year-round, the US flag hangs in this old barn. And for as long as I can remember, the crèche has been placed there, too, each Christmas.
One symbol peacefully coexisting with another. May it always be so.
This flag is tacked to the side of the barn that was recently featured in the Bygone Days post. It’s a fairly simple scene. Yet, for me, on this Election Day, it’s about more than a flag. It’s about the privilege and the freedom to elect those whom we charge to lead and represent us.
