Under 5’s and #LoveWins

In the aftermath of the tragedy at Grenfell Towers – and the terrorist horrors in Manchester and London – those ministers with Under 5 years of ministry who are stationed in the District contemplated the church’s possible responses to local and national tragedies when we met together on Thursday. We shared experiences; joined in worship centred around both praise and lament and prayed for colleagues in Notting Hill and London more generally. And then the U5’s decorated a cake entry for the Bake-Off organised in Wolverhampton for the Great Get Together weekend. This is a “resurrection fruit” of the appalling murder of Jo Cox – and one which I heartily support – we truly do have more in common than that which divides us.
