Joy­ful tes­ti­mony

The Church of England - - CHURCH OF ENGLAND - J Longstaff, Wood­ford Green, Es­sex

Sir, Baroness Thatcher’s funeral ser­vice was a joy­ful tes­ti­mony of some­one who knew who she was in God, the full­ness of life she en­joyed and the mo­ral and spir­i­tual foun­da­tion for her per­sonal and po­lit­i­cal ef­forts. What tremen­dous read­ings and hymns. It was a shame that so many dig­ni­taries and politi­cians at­tend­ing the ser­vice did not dis­play that same joy and con­fi­dence, but at times showed bore­dom and dis­in­ter­est. Oh that the same depth of faith was the foun­da­tion of our present lead­ers to help the na­tion ad­dress the prob­lems of to­day’s so­ci­ety.
