This week, 14th – 20th June, is Refugee Week. Our Action of the Week and lead articles are all about refugees.
Pope Francis, back in May 2013, wrote the following:-
‘I would like to ask you all to see a ray of hope as well in the eyes and hearts of refugees and of whose who have been forcibly displaced. A hope that is expressed in expectations for the future, in the desire for friendship, in the wish to participate in the host society, also through learning the language, access to employment and the education of children. I admire the courage of those who hope to be able gradually to resume a normal life, waiting for joy and love to return to brighten their existence.
We can and must all nourish this hope!’
Please get involved this week if you can.
Other articles include comments on the G7 Summit, which will have taken place in Cornwall by the time you receive this e-bulletin.
We are continuing to take bookings for our Annual Conference, which takes place the 23rd – 25th July at the Hayes Conference Centre in Swanwick, Derbyshire. All the details and a booking form are available through our website here. Everyone is welcome and we are particularly keen on encouraging young people to attend. It is a first for me, and I am taking the family! If we can just sow some seeds in the younger generation about caring for our planet and people, the future of the world would look a lot more hopeful.
The next e-bulletin will be out around the 27th June. If you have any articles you want included, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
God bless you and your loved ones,
