Honest Christianity – what is really important?


If you follow football, you could be very happy or sad today. There has been 2 things of note in my life today, our hospital’s annual memorial service and the final day of this year’s premiership.

One of Bill Shankly’s (ex Liverpool FC manager) famous quotes is “Some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.”

As much as I love the cleverness of this quote, in the light of being at a memorial service for 200 bereaved family members, as much as I love my football, this seems at little crass.

An ex Chelsea manager (yes one of many), has recently said “Football is the most important thing of the least important things in life ” Carlo Ancelotti.

This seems a bit more proportionate.

How ever you feel today, may this be your experience to sustain you thoroughly the ups and downs of what life brings bring that a seed of love has been sown in your life.
