Grief and loss strikes all alike, from palace to terraced house.
Today, our thoughts and prayers go out to ALL who grieve and mourn, and particularly to the family of Queen Elizabeth, who, because of their media profile, we have an extraordinary knowledge of.
We give thanks to God for the long life of Elizabeth, her unstinting service to the life of this nation, the Commonwealth and her diplomatic approach to world affairs. In her humanity she found a greater source of strength with which to rely on through her long life of service.
It’s been no secret that the Queen’s faith in Jesus Christ was of central importance to her. But very little has been written about the particular character of her Christian commitment, or how it fuelled her vision for her role, the nation, and the Commonwealth.
In his fresh analysis, Mark Greene, co-author of The Servant Queen and the King she Serves, looks in depth at what the Queen herself says about her faith. What emerges is a compelling picture of a global stateswoman whose private and public lives have been shaped by the Bible and her relationship with Jesus – whose life of sacrifice, service, and compassion is the inspiration and model for hers.
