You know the popular song Silent Night, but you probably haven’t had much silence lately. In today’s 25 Days of Christmas message, Arlene’s shares the story of Zechariah, a supporting cast member of the Christmas story found in Luke 2. His prayers were about to be answered about two long awaited sons – one was his own son who would become John the Baptist. The other was Jesus who would become the Messiah the Jews had been waiting for hundreds of years. Zechariah would be struck deaf and dumb as a sign of this promise. What did he learn in this silence? What might we learn by being still before God?
