We hear about the shepherds in Luke account of the Nativity. The shepherds were a goup of men who would be out on the hills side caring from their sheep through most of the year. They would be grubby and were certainly the lowest on social scale. And yet it's to them that an angel appears and tells the good news. They are ordinary men. The shepherds hear the greeting and without hesitatiuon leave their flocks to the mecy of the night and hurry to find the things that the angels had told them. Then they rejoiced and hurried around shaing the good news.
