Today we stand on the cusp of a brand new year. What is in store for us in 2018 is anybody’s guess because of the economy and the runaway crimes which haunt our once happy-go-lucky nation. Archbishop Emeritus Joseph Harris in one of his recent homilies said, “The nation is living in fear”. Or like the late calypsonian Penguin sang “We living in jail.” Many citizens are just afraid to be outside late at nights. Criminal activity is too much.
Anyway, since hope springs eternal, we step into 2018 full of optimism in the belief that things will get better for all of us. Our society will go through a metamorphosis that will make Trinidad and Tobago the beautiful country it once was. Armed with such hope Christians will march into 2018 with faith, hope and love for your fellow man and a zest to do all the right things. And that’s where we stand today.
