So many people attended that there had to be an overflow in the basement of the church. The preacher was Peter Jenson, the former Archbishop of Sydney, who spoke from Philippians 1.21, ‘For me to live is Christ and to die is gain.’ He spoke movingly of his friendship with Mike and encouraged the congregation to adopt a different attitude from the world, which thinks that life is everything and death is a terrible tragedy.
