An Easter Lesson?
A Biblical political lesson?
As Anglicans, my family and I went to Church on Easter day.
The service, at Chelmsford Cathedral, suitably bedecked with the Cross of St George, finished with a rousing rendition of the Hallelujah Chorus which sent us off humming.
During the service part of the Epistle reading caught my eye:-
"For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away" 1 Peter 1:24
This is one of those verses that might be taken fatalistically and, if you do so, would tend to sap our will to action but I take it as a positive CALL to action.
In this sense it points out that we all only have a short time to make a difference for the good of our country and nation.
So let's waste no time and do our best now and keep doing so until it is the time for us to "wither"!
