Queen Elizabeth II: 1926 – 2022
Queen Elizabeth II of the UK died on 8 September 2022. Many tributes have been made about her faithful service to her people and others around the world. Queen Elizabeth II also served Jesus faithfully, and in 2014, she wrote:
‘For me, the life of Jesus Christ – the Prince of Peace – is an inspiration and anchor in my life, a role model of reconciliation and forgiveness. He stretched out his hands in love, acceptance and healing. Christ’s example has taught me to seek to respect and value all people, of whatever faith or none.’
Here are two resources explaining about the Queen’s faithful service.
