Merry Christmas!

Hark! the Herald Angels Sing, words by Charles Wesley, 1739, music by Felix Mendelssohn, 1840, sung by the Choir of St Paul's Cathedral.

One of the strongest themes in the Old Testament and the New is do not fear.

The words be not afraid are addressed by God to Abraham, Hagar, Moses and Joshua, by the angel of the Lord to Mary, by angels to the shepherds and by Jesus to his followers - "Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul" (Matthew 10:28), "Arise, and be not afraid" (Matthew 17:7), "Be not afraid, but speak. . ." (Acts of the Apostles 18:9).

Those who heard the Lord were listening - a point that is not always understood by disbelievers.

Most of the Brits we have written about in the Liberty Timeline listened to the Lord, trusted in the Lord, and were not afraid.

To all of our readers and commentators and supporters, we say thank you, and have a very Merry Christmas.
