WHAT’S going to be different in your life from now on? I’ve been asking myself and others this question after what we have all gone through these extraordinary last couple of years. I reckon the great thing about COVID (yes there are some positives!) is that it’s forced, those of us who are willing, to take a fresh look at our ourselves. This is the biggest opportunity in my lifetime for a healthy reset, where we can cast off old harmful or unproductive ways of doing things and focus on the things that are most important.

Jesus, when asked what was most important, suggested two main things – love God wholeheartedly and secondly, love our neighbour as we do ourselves. In my view, this is revolutionary – and the second is dependent on the first. Could these two things be the very things we are looking for to add true meaning to our life?
