He said: "As the poet Spenser wrote, "Love is the lesson which the Lord us taught."
"And the values that Jesus lived his life by - compassion, humility and forgiveness - resonate with people of all faiths and none."
"It's why so many people, both Christian and not, use the weeks before Easter - the forty days of Lent - to take stock of what is truly important to them and their families.
"Whether that is through giving their time to volunteer or going without something in their own lives to help those most in need. It all makes a difference."
A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference
In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.
Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
