A celebrity preacher of his day, Bishop Thomas Ken was passionate about music; he wrote a number of hymns. In the way he lived, respecting others whatever their circumstances, dealing with compassion with whoever came his way, he set an example of a person whose confidence in himself and trust in his faith created a platform for protest and the opportunity to act with generosity.

May we all have the confidence and courage to match our actions to our beliefs.
