Richly Blessed

Earlier, I met with other Christian leaders with friends from other faiths in the Inter-faith Council for Wales. It was a source of great blessing and encouragement at the end of a difficult week.

Being a Christian in that company is increasingly providing joy for me. It's the sort of joy that can only come from seeking truly to be obedient to God. God wants these conversations to take place. I also believe that he wants a truly inclusive Wales where we really do become a nation defined not by our ethnicity or languages but by the way we all respect and treat each other. That respect will be tested and needed in the months to come.

The Christian faith has something quite unique to offer that Wales: the God who so loved the world that he gave his son to die for it. Oh, such love...
