I had just read our resident Provocateur’s article on the visit of the Pope ( give it a read if you haven’t yet… http://blog.kingsdivinity.org2010/09/the-popes-visit-to-britain/), when I checked my emails and found one from “Christian Concern for our Nation” launching their campaign NOT ASHAMED. This campaign seems to me to be as John Cleese would say “stating the ________ obvious“.
I can almost hear the cries from churches saying we don’t need a campaign and a special day for this, this is how we should be living every day – and of course that’s right; that is how we should be living every day, but are we?
Jesus told us to be “Salt and Light” – are we?
We’re commanded to tell everyone we can about Jesus – do we?
Time is tight (Booker T and the MG’s I think?), so as we travel through the political conference season, wander past Halloween and into Advent, I wonder do we ever find ourselves in situations where we are too ashamed to mention Jesus?
