Scripture: Luke 1:5-25
“The announcement of John’s birth begins a series of great events that ring through the corridors of time and eternity as God’s salvation comes to fruition.”
Darrell L. Bock
“Aged priest tending the fires of incense,
You mistrust the angel’s sudden visit,
Counting pledges of answered prayer nonsense
For an old man, an old woman, neither fit.
You temporize, reluctant to submit.
I, too, inquire, “What’s the evidence?”
Even as I stoke altar fires with sweet incense.”
Christine H. Boldt, “Dumbstruck”
“I don’t think you should write something as long as a novel around anything that is not of the gravest concern to you and everybody else, and for me this is always the conflict between an attraction for the Holy and the disbelief in it that we breathe in with the air of our times. It’s hard to believe always but more so in the world we live in now.”
