The Revd Robin Sims-Williams
Confidence is one of the three components of the Diocese of London’s vision for 2020. In that context ‘Confidence’ is about leadership and communicating with the world at large. Confidence can be good, but it can also be unhelpful. It’s the word journalists use when they want to really make a politician squirm, make them avoid giving assurance that the outcome of a new initiative is known. For those of no faith, or little faith there can be some misconception that a Christian’s confidence in eternal life means there is no need to mourn, that death is nothing to fear.
