What Hamilton’s victory teaches the Church?

It was great to see Lewis Hamilton win the British Grand Prix as Silverstone this weekend. Of course, no one doubts that his podium position was the result of talent, teamwork and courage. But there is another quality in that mix; it is persistence. Since Mercedes, a few seasons back, had all sorts of technical problems with its cars yet sheer doggedness has turned the situation around to victory.

 

Most congregations are constantly trying to innovate yet never quite succeed. Why? Maybe we don’t persist in working though the hurdles in the way of any change. Yet if the idea was right in the first place, dogged determination will defeat these difficulties and win the race.

Great Weekend coming soon!

The Gift Weekend Team have had their first meeting and are looking forward to organising a Garden Prom and a Family Harvest Service in September.

The Prom will be modelled on the very successful musical evenings held at Glamis Castle and will feature St Luke’s own talent and that of our friends. What a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a picnic supper in our beautiful gardens at sunset.

So keep the weekend of 19-20 September free for this memorable occasion.
