Well Done the Foxes!

Like most of Leicester, conversation after the services, in recent weeks, over tea or coffee, has often turned to the chances of Leicester City Football Club winning the Premier League Championship. As the season has gone on, what once seemed impossible, has seemed increasingly possible. And now they’ve done it! Congratulations to all at the King Power Stadium. A particular mark of Leicester’s season has been their enthusiasm, hard work, and the way that they have worked for each other.

These are values to be treasured by every member of the Christian church, as well. As we see what enthusiasm means, it’s also worth remembering that the early Christian church spread as its members enthusiastically recounted to others what the risen Lord Jesus meant to them. May we share that enthusiasm.
