Keep alert, stand firm in your faith, be courageous, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love. (1 Corinthians 16 v 13-1)
This past week we said goodbye to a true hero - Captain Sir Tom Moore - someone who embodied the spirit of courage & strength of character - someone for whom “doing the right thing” was the only way. He stood firm in his resolve to walk 100 laps of his garden to raise his initial target of £1000. He captured the hearts and minds of the whole nation and gave us all the sense of hope that we all needed in a time of darkness.
He did everything with a strong sense of duty, but above all he did it with love. I for one will hold on to his lasting words which he used for the title of his autobiography “Tomorrow will be a good day” - hold on to those words and those of St. Paul - stand firm in your faith, be courageous, be strong.
