Faith and Hope Separated
It was with sadness we learnt of the death of the separated twin Hope. Her sister Faith is recovering from the eleven hour operation which separated the conjoined twins. London's Great Ormond Street Hospital said week-old Hope Williams had died shortly after the procedure to divide her from her sister Faith.
As Christians we are admonished to "Continue in the Faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the Hope of the Gospel." Colossians 1:20. Faith and Hope must stand together because when they are separated death often occurs. Hope died at the expense of Faith. However Faith continues and where there is Faith can Hope ever truly die?
