    Pale parallels there with the struggle to the death against religious tyranny for the sake of the gospel in my book, and the tough challenge to holiness when life is very easy.

  3. Went to see number 10 at the Proms only last year!! Had great fun sitting on the next to last row and being “hushed” by a lady sat behind us, who was dolled up to the nines.
