Listening for angels - A Christian Science perspective from The Christian Science Monitor

We can hear God when we quiet materialism.

As children on Christmas Eve, my brother and I lay in our bunk beds so incredibly quiet, straining our ears to hear what we hoped would be the faint, far-off sound of sleigh bells approaching.
