Now the Work of Christmas Begins

During our 2017 Urban Hope Christmas Party, we asked some of our young heroes to recite and reflect on Howard Thurman's classic litany, "Now the Work of Christmas Begins." Check out what they said in the video below and consider making a donation to support Urban Hope as we engage in the work of Christmas all year long.

When the song of the angels is stilled,
when the star in the sky is gone,
when the kings and princes are home,
when the shepherds are back with their flocks,
the work of Christmas begins:
to find the lost,
to heal the broken,
to feed the hungry,
to release the prisoner,
to rebuild the nations,
to bring peace among the people,
to make music in the heart.
— Howard Thurman (1899-1981)
