Reflection on World Events from the Vicar:

There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male or female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. Gal 3:28

I don’t know about you but I am getting increasingly worried about our world at the moment and what seems to be a rising lack of tolerance and understanding between groups based simply upon outward differences. That levels of racially motivated aggression should increase in our own country following the referendum result of a couple of weeks ago is bad enough, however the escalation in racially motivated tensions in the United States has seemingly taken things to another level.

In the light of this, the best thing that I feel we can do, is to pray for the world to come to see itself as St Paul describes in his letter to the Galatians – as a world in which there are no divisions only unity. And perhaps we begin by praying for ourselves, that we can start to reach out to others in how we live our lives and see each other as being made in the image of God and precious to God. Maybe then we will begin to see that unity that Paul describes and Christ wants for the world become a reality – and one that hopefully will last through our prayers.
