I heard a little anecdote just today that Leon Morris, who I believe is Australia’s most published theological author, and a very highly regarded one, regularly bought roses to plant on the grounds at Ridley Melbourne, and was known to say “truth is alive with beauty and goodness”.
I like that.
(I heard it as an oral quote so can’t verify it.)
At times I think I am becoming such a Nanna (so that little anecdote was rather reassuring!), but I have been excited of late to see this happening on my St Saviour’s rose bushes (I admit, when I was given these sticks in plastic bags I had my doubts, but something must be going right so far).
