The scriptures read are Zechariah 10, Psalm 139 and Luke 1.
Zechariah 10. Because false gods are rubbish and religious experts talk rubbish, God will step in and be his people's shepherd. And he will bring them back from the far corners of the world.
Psalm 139. It's hard to find a song that covers the whole psalm. This comes closest.
Luke 1. To read my reflections on this chapter, click here.
