Our dear friends
We hardly got used to year 2016, and the 2017 calendar is filling up fast. Would you believe that 17 years past since Y2K? After Christmas joy comes the New Year and questions what lies ahead of us and what to expect? The Christmas Season ends on January 6th here in Czech Republic. According to catholic tradition it is the day of three kings (wise men).
It is hard to imagine that 28 years after the fall of the Iron curtain, and days we all were concerned about the “New World Order,” now we are concerned about the end of it. Our civilization and peace is under siege. Christian events, well known places, street markets and public gatherings are in the terrorist’s focus. Police armed with long guns in black uniforms patrols public places. Concrete barriers are erected at tourist places where crowds of people gather. Our world is facing hostility and getting again smaller. We have many reasons to pray for the future as we rejoice that He is in charge:
‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.
Blessings and best wishes to all,
In His Service
