BBC Breakfast presenter and Football Focus frontman Dan Walker explains how he still has hope despite Covid.
BBC Breakfast anchor Dan Walker says his Christian faith played a significant role in shaping his life and offering hope through the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Football Focus and BBC Breakfast presenter is a committed Christian and has always been passionate and open about his faith.
It has been widely reported in the media that he made it clear that he will not work on Sundays as his beliefs are more important than his job.
Now, Walker has spoken of how much of a critical role his faith in Jesus plays within daily life. He said: “It is a very significant part of my life.
“I don’t take much seriously in life except for my faith and my family. I believe that if you have a strong faith in Jesus Christ, it has to make a difference to how you live your life.
“It informs who I am and who I would like to be, where I’m going, the way I talk, the way I act, hopes, dreams, aspirations etc. It is a significant part of everyday life.”
While many have struggled to come to terms with the uncertainty of 2020 with the outbreak of coronavirus throwing the world upside down for so many, Walker insists there is hope as a Christian, with your direction and focus being centred around Jesus.
He added; “If you are a Christian, that has an impact on your decisions, your language, the way you think and speak and go about your daily business.
“I would like to think that it reduces pride and self-obsession and makes you think more carefully about the people around you, and the impact you’re having on the community and society around you.
“For me, it underpins everything I am and want to be.”
