Blog October 28th – The Cross – Jewellery?

Love is Patient, Love is Kind from the album Love is the Way featuring Lucy Stimpson- Maynard – recorded and produced by John Hodgkinson

I was one of the countless people in front of my tv screen cheering on Emma Raducanu to victory in the recent US Woman’s Tennis Open. I have to say I was less than impressed when she ditched her coach – but that’s another story.
I noticed Emma was wearing a cross around her neck while she was playing- I could not find anything to suggest she was a Christian but I did hope she was. I then noticed in a later interview in which she was glamorously dressed that a large gold neckless and not a Cross adorned her neck. This made me wonder if she had just worn the cross when playing as a piece of jewellery rather than as a statement of faith.
This reminded me of the story of a young woman that went into a Jewellery shop and asked the shop assistant if she could see their range of crosses. When the assistant returned with a number of them, the young woman exclaimed “No, not one of those – I want one with a little man on it.”
How sad!
