July 2020

Dear Friends,

Jesus was once asked what the greatest commandments were. He answered that they were two-fold: to love God and to love our neighbours as ourselves. In these words, Jesus sums up the desire of all who want to follow Christ. As the Church Reformer, Martin Luther, used to say, the Christian life is a journey from being in-turned to being outgoing in love. But this aspiration, so easy to describe, is difficult to put into practice.

Someone once said, that we are born thinking that the world exists solely for our benefit. Some, indeed, go through their entire life holding on to that childish misconception. This is why, it is so vital that we allow the example and words of Christ to inform how we live. It's a struggle, for it involves the attempt to look beyond ourselves, our friends and families and to view things from the perspective of Christ. But the journey is worthwhile, for, says Jesus, it is the best and most satisfying way to live.

Keep well, Adam
