Think positive, priest urges BDF

Defeatist thoughts will not help in battle.
Reverend Dr Nigel Taylor offered that advice yesterday to members of the Barbados Defence Force (BDF), citing the importance of being prepared for battle as seen in the biblical book Ephesians.
Delivering an address at St Matthias Anglican Church in Christ Church to mark the 35th anniversary of the BDF, Taylor, who is also Boy Scouts commissioner, said it was “highly” important that one’s estimate of oneself should be based on reality and a proper knowledge of one’s abilities.
In a service attended by Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave and Lady Belgrave, as well as Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and heads of the police and fire services, Taylor said many people with “splendid” possibilities often failed because deep down they believed they would fail. (YB)
