Life is Too Short

I saw this online very recently and ... well it's just perfect for a Friday Thought ... or indeed for a thought for any day.

It's from the pen, or mouth, of a very wise man - Nicky Gumbel -  who is, I have to say, one of the finest people I've had the privilege of meeting in my life. Very briefly ... but wow ... what a guy!

The Rev Nicky is the Vicar of Holy Trinity Brompton church in the Diocese of LondonChurch of England and it was he who helped to develop the Alpha Course, which is an 'introduction to Christianity' course which has changed millions of lives across the globe. I've taken the course and also been an Alpha course leader ... it's just amazing and full of common sense as well as trying to help us unravel the mysteries of faith. 

Nicky is well known for his straight speaking and this, I think, is Nicky at his best.

It's a thought which has been picked up by the 'Thy Kingdom Come' prayer movement which started in 2016 as an invitation from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to the Church of England and has now grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer involving Christians from across denominations.

However, even if you're not a 'prayer' ... this piece of wisdom is classic. And I hope it inspires you today as it inspires me.

Thanks Nicky! 

Have a great day everyone!
