The Sabbath was given to man to be a blessing for rest, worship, fellowship and family.
It was good that Ed Balls was concerned about “breaking up centuries of tradition” (Yorkshire Post, March 19) while George Osborne was ignoring the Maker’s instructions. Keeping Sunday special has been such a benefit to our nation and we should never be ashamed of this.

FURTHER to the correspondence about death prompted by Ruthven Urquhart, I am reminded of my father who always dismissed my inquiries how so and so had died with the reply: “Short of breath.” For the record, he himself died “eagerly” shortly before his 100th birthday. He hated fuss.

WHAT does it matter whether you’re as fit as a butcher’s pup or a butcher’s dog? If you are as fit as either of them, can get up in the morning and get your wellies on you are a millionaire.
