Today is the second day of the last month of 2018. It is the start of the Advent season leading up to the birth of Jesus Christ, our Saviour. It is a time of peace and joy, a time of giving and sharing, a time for family fellowship, exchanging greetings and goodwill.
But in the middle of all this, a pall hangs heavily over our country. People are uncertain of what lies ahead. Many people are able to put up a front of enjoyment and happiness but ask anyone and it will be quietly said they are unsure.
There are so many things wrong with our fractured society. People are not living up to their responsibilities; managers not managing but resting on whatever laurels they might have achieved. Productivity is decreasing and criminal activity is on the rise.
