The Silence of Big Ben October 9, 2017

Since 1859 London’s Big Ben has been Britain’s most famous timekeeper. But the giant bell atop Parliament’s clock tower fell silent last month. It will be silent for four years for repair work. Hundreds gathered under the Victorian clock and nearby Parliament Square to mark the moment. However, while this famous timepiece will be quiet for a while, time marches on. We will still need to do things on time, still be reminded that time is passing whenever we observe a birthday. The Psalmist reminds us that our lives are controlled by God. Speaking for us all he wrote “My times are in Your hands.” And surely it is a wise use of our time to make our peace with God while we have opportunity, by recognizing our fallen nature and spiritual need and accepting His wonderful gift of forgiveness and eternal life.
