We all know the Christmas carol:
Hark the Herald Angels sing "Glory to the newborn king..."
The carol comes from the passage in Luke 2:8-14:
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the L-rd came upon them, and the glory of the L-rd shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
I'm making this short because it's late tonight. This question is maybe mostly for Philangelus if she decides to come by, but let me ask all of you: Can angels sing? In a larger vein, are they capable of creating things, the way that humans can? How are angels the same, and different, from us?
