The NW NJPN E BULLETIN FOR MID JUNE 2022 is an extra edition with a special focus on two current news stories: the shameful deportation of asylum seekers to Rwanda by the British government which at the time of writing appears to be going ahead despite widespread protest and the sad news that veteran peace campaigner Bruce Kent has died. This issue contains an in-depth tribute to Bruce by Ellen Teague plus links to many other tributes. He will be greatly missed. A new food plan to address the problems of obesity and food poverty in the UK has been strongly criticised by a lead advisor. There are details of a new book from Church Action on Poverty DIGNITY, AGENCY, POWER. This anthology of stories, prayers, reflections and liturgy has been published to coincide with the organisation’s 40th anniversary and is available to order in print or digital format. Two US writers contribute challenging opinion pieces – on liturgy to advance the pursuit of peace and a compassionate response to clergy sexual abuse from a woman priest. If you haven’t done so already don’t forget to book a place on the NJPN Conference 22-24 July on the theme Hope is a Verb with Its Sleeves Rolled Up’.
Please pass on to others.
