Our second reading today came from Paul’s letter to the church at Ephesus (Ephesians 4 1-16) . Paul writes, ‘Lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called’. This is something we could say to little Orla, who comes to join us, as a member of our church, by being baptised today, but it is also good advice for the rest of us.
But what does Paul mean by living a worthy life? What is a worthy life?
