David Wells, an inspiring speaker and writer is Director of Adult Formation and Youth Ministry in the Diocese of Plymouth. He provided the narrative for a short film - Love Chooses You....
Born into a simple family, a carpenter's apprentice.
Born to an illiterate teenage mother with no A*s.
Born to refugees, with no address.
Born into a trough the animals ate out of, in a room to house bovine TB.
Born into military rule, violently imposed by a narcissist who murdered babies.
Growing up in a sink estate, It could have been a Chelsea, or a Cheshire, Sandbanks or Surrey, but it wasn't.
God chose a troubled first century Palestine.
