This morning in my sermon I quoted the last words of Eric Liddell. He was also known as “The Flying Scotsman”. Liddell was the winner of the men’s 400 metres at the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris. His Olympic training and racing, and the religious convictions that influenced him, are depicted in the Oscar-winning 1981 film Chariots of Fire, in which he is portrayed by fellow Scot Ian Charleson.

His last words were:

“It’s complete surrender!”

Liddell died of a brain tumor in a Japanese internment camp on February 21, 1945.

I think Liddell and Dietrich Bonhoeffer would get along well
