TBM-2012.24 – Amazing Peace, by Maya Angelou

Christmas Candles

Description:

#audio. #readerstheatre #AmazingPeace #MayaAngelou #Christmas

Excerpt:

Into this climate of fear and apprehension, Christmas enters,
Streaming lights of joy, ringing bells of hope
And singing carols of forgiveness high up in the bright air.
The world is encouraged to come away from rancor,
Come the way of friendship.
