The First Carols: The Benedictus

December 1, 2019


Zechariah is struck speechless because he needs to stop and listen. Perhaps we need to once again be struck speechless by the power of this story; to be silent and listen for what God, who came to us in person in Jesus and continues to work through the Holy Spirit, is up to in our life. To do that, we need to create some space. Consider some digital fasting this Advent, lay aside the distractions, and make some time to simply “be” in God’s presence. Who knows what kind of good news you will be singing about after the silence!
