Pause for Thought

More recently and without the BBC’s help, Archbishop Justin Welby discovered his biological father wasn’t the person he initially thought. However, this news didn’t shake him as one would expect.
He says: ‘This revelation has, of course, been a surprise, but… I know that I find who I am in Jesus Christ, not in genetics, and my identity in him never changes.’
Like Justin Welby, I pray that we may all ‘See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are.’ 1 John 3:1
