How will history look back on 2020?
Donald Trump clinging on to power by his fingertips, Boris Johnson and the Brexit deal, the growing strength of the Climate Change lobby bringing greater accountability for our actions on this planet and of course Covid-19 and global pandemic.
So many things have challenged our security, bringing change to our normal life and uncertainty in the future.
One thing the pandemic teaches us is how weak and vulnerable we really are and how we cannot control the future.
As we come into Lent, it is a time to remember the greatest change that has ever happened that brought a certainty and hope in the future.
God reached down into this world more than 2,000 years ago in Jesus Christ, opening the way for us in our weakness to know God and to have certainty in the hope of his love for us that brings the certainty of eternal life with him.
This change transformed a group of uneducated fishermen to venture out into the world proclaiming the good news that has grown into the biggest worldwide church of 2.4 billion people today.
