A Steady Faith

I'm not particularly fond of royal pageants, of pomp and ceremony, fly-pasts and flag-waving. And I'm not inclined to put the Royal Family on a pedestal - like the rest of us, they fall off too often. But I am in awe of the Queen's faith. For all the privilege and deference and ease of life that she enjoys, this is someone who has given her life to public service, to the constant practice of making others feel better by her presence. And she has endured setbacks and scandals, turmoil and grief; but always there has been a sense of something strong, a core reliance on God that is unshakeable - and inspiring. Not a showy faith, but a steady faith - that is something to celebrate.
