Many of you, like me, will have been cheering on the men and women in the Rio 2016 Olympics.
Gold medal winner, Mat Whitlock, spoke of the many years, hard work, dedication and focus which led to the few minutes he had to prove himself in the stadium. St Paul spoke of the Christian journey as running a race with the goal being firmly fixed on the prize, the Kingdom of God. May we, with God’s help, follow the example of our triumphant medal winners and strive to live the best life we can focused on what is important and true. Matthew Burnell, St Paul’s, Manton
