The planet is currently seeing the largest movement of people fleeing violence and persecution since the second world war.  Neither the market nor politics have any answers to offer, but from the deep wells of human kindness and from the compassionate heart of faith come loving actions and generous responses which are rising to meet the challenge.  This January at St Bride’s is given over to a deeper exploration of the voice of the refugee and of our faith tradition.  We pray for the grace to be stirred into deep reflection and loving action through the coming month.
