This is going to be a good time to be in Glasgow as the world looks in on our city and hopefully sees more than a celebration of sporting achievement, but a community of peoples who respect each other, live in peace, engage with the arts and promote health and well-being. The Church is part of that, hence our rather OTT banner about celebrating the Games. We, as the community of faith, need to engage with our immediate community as the Church has to at the macro level and one of the ways of doing this will be to celebrate these Games with our neighbours showing them their joys, their fun are ours also. We are not that different- we love life also. In Christ Jesus we have been given new life; let us use this opportunity (to share in the life of the Games) as an opportunity to offer a vision of life that is positive, affirming and health giving to our community.
God bless you all.
