Rev. Lis Mullen of the URC writes:
This last week has been Christian Aid Week, but it is very different this year and the giving will no doubt be much lower - but the needs of the communities and projects that CA seeks to help are no different. This year, in the face of coronavirus, the poorest and most vulnerable in our world need your help. Families who are living in over-crowded refugee camps. People who have no clean water to wash their hands. These are grandparents, mums, dads and children – people like you and me. We must respond to limit the impacts of coronavirus and continue to help people living in poverty. From providing essential soap, water and handwashing training to Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, to ensuring we can continue to provide life-saving support for some of the poorest families across the world.
As coronavirus spreads across the world, love rises up in response.
Our love protects from storms, from drought, and now from coronavirus. Our love protects our global neighbours, battling the spread of this illness. Our love protects with soap, clean water and medical supplies. Love unites us. Even in the darkest moments, love gives hope.
The traditional envelope isn’t available so can I suggest you design one of your own to put anything you can afford in it and then either send it with a cheque payable to ‘Christian Aid’ to Christian Aid, 35-41 Lower Marsh, London SE1 7RL, donate by phone: 02075232046 or online, or save the envelope until we gather again and you can bring it to church. This is our action as the body of Jesus and sharing his love.
With my love and prayers
