Olive is on a bit of a roll at the minute. First, she reminds me that I haven’t welcomed the election of our new President and Vice-President for next year. That was remiss of me.
Second, she points to a report in the Telegraph that Only 10% of Britons know the Bible. Olive is right - there is a lot to do. The church has an enormous task. My daughter, aged 12, came home from school the other day saying that in a ’straw poll’ she was the the only one in her class of 30 who said they believed in God.
Mind you, if the task before us is big, the God we worship is bigger.
If we remembered that, we might be a bit less prone to being the tired-but-hungry workaholic church that Olive talks about in the third of her posts to catch my eye today.
