Good news story

We are desperate to hear good news stories today. The news is full of terrible things that are happening in other countries and even in our own country there is talk of inflation and job losses and public figures misbehaving. What we want now is a story about good news. Sometimes in the news programmes they will put a story at the end which may put a smile on our face because something funny has happened or someone has succeeded in a tremendous challenge. But the story I want to refer to is a long running story of good news and it does sometimes capture the headlines.

I am referring to the Queens Platinum Jubilee. What an incredible achievement. A lifetime of service to her country, in the good times and the bad. Making decisions which will be viewed by the government and the public. Trying to steer a course which enables her to balance that public role without getting into the politics. Supporting the Prime Minister whether she agrees with them or not. Bringing up a family in the public eye. Having to deal with family problems which will be splashed all over the newspapers.

Our Queen has been faithful to her task, she has set an example to all her subjects that we can devote our life to serving even when it costs us a great deal. Who can forget the pictures of the forlorn figure sat on her own at her husband’s funeral? She could have said, “I am the Queen, I can break the rules if I want to.” But she didn’t, she followed the Covid-19 regulations because she wanted to identify with all those who had to do the same when their loved ones had died.

The Queen has regularly acknowledged that she gets her strength from her faith in God. She looks to Jesus as her example. In recent Christmas broadcasts she has talked openly about her faith. We can see in her humble nature and her gratitude to others that she doesn’t take her position for granted, she knows what a privilege it is to be Queen but she also knows that it can be very lonely in positions of power. She has of course got the support of her family and up to recently she leaned on her husband Prince Phillip. But central to her life and service is her faith in God. From the very beginning of her reign, she has acknowledged God’s help in the work she does. On her 21st Birthday radio address she said, “God help me to make good my vow, and God bless all of you who are willing to share in it.” The quality of service, the length of service, her strength in difficult times, the ability to balance her role in this country with the politics which happen around her, and the Queens attitude to people whether they be Kings or Presidents or an ordinary person at a Garden Party is the same, she always shows an awareness in whoever she meets. These qualities have made her a Sovereign to be celebrated. And so, we look forward to the Platinum Jubilee celebrations which will highlight her seventy years of faithful service to our nation and those of the Commonwealth.    

God Bless
