Something to Think About

Evesham Editorial 3rd Jun, 2018   0

WILLIAM Shakespeare’s famous phrase from Act 2 Scene 2 of the “Tempest”; ‘Strange bedfellows’ came to mind last Saturday evening when I was watching and filming the special train at the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway.

Taking the train into Broadway was Great Western engine “King Edward II” and at the other end bringing it back from Broadway was BR engine “Oliver Cromwell”.

In history the one representing the Royalists and the other the Anti-Royalists and I wondered if the organisers had seen the significance because many of my fellow photographers hadn’t.

So often in life we see partnerships in business and even in marriage where the people seem to be so totally different that you wonder if these liaisons will last, but many times they do.

In the Gospels we read of Jesus Christ choosing his twelve disciples from various backgrounds and abilities and I often wonder if I would have picked the same ones that he did.

The Christian Church is not just for the rich, the famous or the academics but it is for all people of whatever ability or standing in the world.

Whoever we are, Jesus Christ is calling us to accept him as Lord and Saviour in our lives and experience the great love of God that comes through him
