Quote of the day 10th June 2016

At the service to commemorate the Queen's 90th birthday, Archbishop Welby read excerpts from Psalm 139 and told the congregation it explored "fear and wonder, and the connection between them".

He said over the Queen's lifetime, there had been "much to fear at times of personal challenge or national crisis".

"But just as the Psalmist sees through fear to something more stirring and more extraordinary, so we look back on Your Majesty's 90 years in the life of our nation with deep wonder and profound gratitude.

"Through war and hardship, through turmoil and change, we have been fearfully and wonderfully sustained."
