Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so…’

It’s reported that after giving a lecture at Chicago University in 1962, the late Swiss Theologian Karl Barth was asked if he could sum up his theology in one sentence. Perhaps to the surprise of all who were there Barth answered that he could – ‘Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so…’ As we spend time before the Lord today, simply reflect on the opening words of this well known and much loved children’s hymn.
