Certainty in Uncertain Times

Many of you are people who turn to the Bible in uncertain times. For some others the Bible is somewhat unknown. Yet you all know it to be a source of wise guidance.

Right now, when we are surrounded by alarming, irrational, fear-based behaviour it seems wise indeed to turn to the steady, settling strength of the Bible.

The Bible is full of songs. The original music isn’t recorded, only the lyrics. In this week’s editorial the best thing I can do is let you read one of the most famous of these Bible songs; Psalm 23. It is pasted below. I hope you find it comforting; a counterbalance to the clamorous cacophony.

Read it slowly.

Picture the words as if it is you; yes, you yourself in the song, with God as your Guardian. Let yourself be restored by Psalm 23.

- David Gleeson, Principal


The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow
of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my
enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD
Forever.
