Prayers for NSW and Victoria.
Our love and prayers go out to our Victorian and NSW friends as they face a serious upsurge in the numbers of Covid-19 sufferers, and isolate to help control the spread. In your isolation God is with you. Stay safe, stay home, and keep in touch with family and friends as much as you can
Love and peace, Rev'd Anne Kennedy (Australian President)

Poverty and hardship
Shame, blame, scorn: few suffering poverty and hardship can hope for any dignity or sense of self -worth. Perhaps our light may rise when we buy The Big Issue. However, Christians give of themselves not to feel better but out of Love. And with an awareness cultivated by the Discipline of Simplicity their willingness to support and encourage the disadvantaged will be energised and focussed.
If you offer your food to the hungry and satisfy the needs of the afflicted, then your light shall rise in the darkness and your gloom be like the noonday. Isaiah 58:10
Early in August, before the Taliban took over in Kabul, members in Leeds discovered help was needed for quarantining Afghan families in hotels. A Manchester hotel manager who is the son of an MU member living in the Huddersfield Episcopal Area, became a contact for the Diocese of Leeds in their efforts to assist refugees.
