Amazing Grace

In these days of instant communications it can be easy to get into arguemements. John Newton who wrote “Amazing Grace”, lived when communications were slower and had advice on the matter that might still be usefully applied.

” You will be met with three types of response,” he wrote. “Those who disagree on principle; those who readily approve of what you say; and a third who will be influenced by the writer’s spirit”.

In other words, the only thing that will make a difference is our attitude. Whether it by letter, online or face to face, we should remember to take the right spirit with us in all our interactions.

And if we can, make it in love.
