Queen appeals for unity in Christmas Day speech
The Queen reflected on the 'power of faith' but also 'some of life's baffling paradoxes such as the way human beings have a huge propensity for good, and yet a capacity for evil'.

'Even the power of faith which frequently inspires great generosity and self sacrifice can fall victim to tribalism,' she said.

'But through the many changes I have seen over the years faith, family and friendship have been not only a constant for me, but a source of personal comfort and reassurance.'

The Queen, 92, has reigned for the last 66 years, making her Britain's longest-reigning monarch. Since her coronation in 1953, she has seen 19 different prime ministers lead Parliament. ...

Amen, NeedHim! Ephesians 2 fits well as well. We are reconciled to the Father by and thru the Son and then one another.

How, incredibly common Timothy❗️I understand that Queen Elizabeth likes a good horse race though.

Jason Thomson wrote:
Others counter that even if one disregards the opinion polls (which Whitelock argues will change as younger generations, less wedded to the royal family, come of age) there is the net economic benefit the monarchy brings to Britain each year: a haul of $1.7 billion, which includes the boost to tourism and surplus generated by the Crown Estate, according to Brand Finance, a valuation agency.... (Queen Elizabeth II's record reign: Is popularity of monarchy as enduring?)

The monarchy does offer a measure of stability in this age of (Populism)

Yes, it would be wonderful, NeedHim, if the upper classes of Great Britain gave Christianity a try, but except for a 19th century prime minister Gladstone, I don't think any have through the centuries.

Didn't the archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, of the church of England apologize to the faux pa for the reformation last year?

The best unity to be in is through Christ Alone amen. Being in Christ unity is like no other. That we have unity is by the Spirit of Christ baptizing us into Christ & into His body, the church (1 Cor. 12:12–13). Our expression of that unity must therefore be a unity of the truth “as the truth is in Jesus” (Eph. 4:21). Ultimately, that will be all the truth that is in Jesus, but our unity with Jesus doesn’t wait until that perfection is achieved. Salvation comes to us by faith in Christ, so there must be a defining core of truth that is ours in faith, sufficient to unite us to Christ even if n’t yet complete in all its detail. Defining this core precisely might prove to be as difficult as living out the whole truth faithfully, but it will surely include that God, the creator of heaven & earth against whom we have all sinned, was in Christ, reconciling to Himself all who believe in Him, n’t counting their sins against them, but forgiving them through the redemption that is found in the sinless life & atoning death of Christ & received by faith alone, calling for obedience to Christ as Lord under the authority of His Word in the Holy Scriptures. Where Christ is truly preached, there is the gospel; & where the gospel is truly believed, there is the church.

I wouldn’t walk across the road to pitch horseshoes with the royal family—unless, of course, they were serving pulled pork and Brunswick stew.

On the other side of the coin .......

"The British tourism agency has reported that the royal family generates close to 500 million pounds, or about $767 million, every year in tourism revenue, drawing visitors to historic royal sites like the Tower of London, Windsor Castle, and Buckingham Palace."

More a tourist attraction than a monarchy!!👍

No more than the crown jewels, Timothy. Her charitable contributions may be quite large, in fact running charities and raising money, I understand, is one of the principle functions of the members of the Royal Family.

So Jim do you think she should give her golden piano, a family heirloom, to a hobo?

The queen delivered her Christmas speech to hundreds of thousands of people across the UK, in which she chose to focus on the topic of family and unity.

Her message fell short however, as many called her 'out of touch' for talking about poverty while sat in front of a golden piano. The elaborate piano features cherubs and has been in the royal family for more than a century. Made from mahogany and painted gold, the S & P Erard piano was first purchased by Queen Victoria in 1856.....

excerpt from, "The queen delivered her annual Christmas speech in front of a gold piano. The internet reacted accordingly"

[ ]

What❗️ you mean not everyone has a gold piano in their living room. I bet Trump does❗️ He will after he sees the queen speech anyway. 😀

If all Southerners just spoke BBC English.👍

Apparently all these people are complaining didn't watch the tour of her palaces, on PBS

I would second your notion, just a guy, but I would include the whole church of England.

Good point, "Dr Tim" which just serves to remind us..England is a mess!
Maybe nice to visit for the Chelsea Garden Show once a year, but that's it!
I can't even watch the innumerable PBS shows from England because they speak funny, not like good Southerners or Texans.
England has become a mess from too much diversity. You could call it, Revenge of Colonialism, since all the people who lived in their former colonies think they have the right to live in England. (I think the Parliament could change that, if they wanted to, but it's too late now).
Well, I did like the old Sherlock Holmes movies with Basil Rathbone.
And cricket is always a good game to watch when you can't sleep at night.

The Church of England is a visible church.
Then there is the invisible

WCF 25.
"The visible Church, which is also catholic or universal under the Gospel (not confined to one nation, as before under the law), consists of all those throughout the world that profess the true religion;[2] and of their children:[3] and is the kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ,[4] the house and family of God,[5] out of which there is no ordinary possibility of salvation.[6]

III. Unto this catholic visible Church Christ has given the ministry, oracles, and ordinances of God, for the gathering and perfecting of the saints, in this life, to the end of the world: and does, by his own presence and Spirit, according to his promise, make them effectual thereunto."

V The purest Churches under heaven are subject both to mixture and error;[10] and some have so degenerated, as to become no Churches of Christ, but synagogues of Satan.[11] Nevertheless, there shall be always a Church on earth to worship God according to his will.[12]"

She is also the “supreme governor” of the “Church” of England, which is no more a church than the Roman Catholic “Church.”

I'm surprised an American has,to come to the defense of the Queen❗ She would have no business preaching As the titular head of the Commonwealth she did a good job. I being a citizen of a Republic, and a Christian, I don't want any queens over me, but then I'm just commenting on her speech as titular head of state. (Continued)

R. L. Dabney wrote:
“Would God use and honor an agency which he himself has declared to be unlawful?” We reply, “Yes.”

Surely God does not honor, but he does use agents whom he disapproves of.

Surely God does not approve of a man who “preaches Christ out of envy and rivalry” (Philippians 1:15), yet the Apostle Paul rejoices in the fact that “whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached.” There are two very simple truths, which no believer disputes, destroy the whole force of their argument that the “ends justify the means.” One is that a truly sincere Christian may go in the wrong direction in one particular area of their life, and our heavenly Father, who is very patient, may withhold his displeasure from the misguided efforts of his child, through Christ's intercession, because, though misguided, he is his still God’s blessed child. The other is, that it is one of God's clearest and most blessed prerogatives to bring good out of evil. Thus who can doubt that it is wrong for a man dead in his sins to intrude into the sacred ministry? Yet God has often employed such sinners to convert souls; not sanctioning their profane intrusion, but glorifying his own grace by overruling it....

Yes,John UK!
But what else could we expect from one who is connected to Rome?
I see a common denominator between this story and the other newer ones...the world and RCs love "christmas".

Another woolly speech from a pseudo Protestant.

I would prefer to see the queen quote:

Romans 3:10-12 KJV
(10)  As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
(11)  There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
(12)  They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

Without delving into Her Majesty's entire address, the paradox she described between the supposed "propensity" to do good juxtaposed against the supposed "capacity" to commit evil is easily explained (which is described backward - people have the capacity to do good but the propensity to evil). There is such a thing as original sin. Her Majesty only need consider those theologians, commonly referred to as "Divines," who met in Westminster in the 1640s, and read chapter 6 of the Westminster Confession of Faith.

Not sure what the "tribalism" comment is about but sure seems like a thought that "all roads lead to God," which the Lord Jesus denies by stating that He is "the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Me."

Yes, it was refreshing to see the queen give her speech in a very dignified manner and yet in a personal way too. The SA article was a good summary of it. You can see the whole speech here oh, it isn't that long. (Christmas Day speech)
