Fear No More

Posted by No Name on

Among the colourful cast of characters, the shepherds, angels, wise men, Joseph and Mary, Zechariah is usually overlooked in the Christmas story. “Who?” Exactly. But of all the above, Zechariah was the first one to be given a preview that God was planning something huge and...

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10Life is busy and we are besieged by a constant stream of activities. The new normal is to be busy with being busy. If one were to admit, “Today, I’m not so busy,&rdquo...
