Thought for the week

There is a popular perception that faith or church is a kind of therapy for people who are inadequate while those who are mature, well-balanced and courageous can get along fine without any need for faith or worship. It is time to discover again that there is no greater adventure, and nothing more courageous, than following Jesus. If we follow him we need to be prepared for many of our assumptions to be turned upside down and to embark on a new life – a life that comes as the gift of God, a life where we discover our true humanity, a life that is fit for the brave.
