Jade Goody RIP « Nick Baines’s Blog

Some excellent words from the Bishop of Croydon on the death of British reality TV celebrity, Jade Goody, who dies this morning. His final paragraph offers hope.

My final word on this is simply that the root of Christian faith is the confidence that death itself cannot separate us from the love of God as seen in Jesus Christ. The narrative of this world says that violence, death and destruction have the final word and ultimate power: the cross and an empty tomb say appearances can be deceptive. God who creates, sustains, redeems and loves has the final word and that word is ‘resurrection’.
