2 Sam. 7:1-5,8-12,14,16, Psalm 89, Luke 1:67-79


Zachary, joyful at the birth of John, uses his first words after being mute for nine months, to chant the Benedictus. A divinely-inspired prayer, prompted by the Holy Spirit. He praises God for fulfilling his promise to Abraham and the prophets. The promise of redemption. We can do no better than to praise God and thank him for the many blessings we have and will receive. We have done nothing personally, to entitle us to live in Aotearoa, truly, a land of milk and honey, peace and beauty.
