Prayer for peace in Iraq

Lord, the plight of our country
is deep and the suffering of the Christians
is heavy and frightening us,
therefore we ask you Lord
to assign our lives, grant us patience and courage
to continue to witness our Christian values with trust and hope.

Lord, peace is the base of any life; give us peace
and stability
to live with each other without fear, anxiety,
with dignity and joy, glory to you forever.

Amen

Stop Arming Israel

Thousands of Civilians including hundreds of children have been killed in Gaza in the on-going conflict between Israel & Palestine. Many countries and the UN are urgently seeking ways to stop the violence but the UK is instead aggravating the situation by continuing to sell arms to Israel. Since 2010 the UK government has licensed £42 million worth of arms to Israel. Our Covenant with the Poor commits us to ‘Challenge injustice through political and social action in the light of the Gospel.’

Please challenge this injustice and use the link below to tell the Foreign Secretary that it is time to put peace before profit and to put an embargo on arms sales to Israel now.

LIVE SIMPLY Tip of the Week – Making sandwiches for lunch?

What’s better for the environment, aluminium foil or cling film?

Sadly, both require a huge amount of energy and resources in their production.
So use your loaf, and wrap in compostable greaseproof paper. Or pop your panini into a reusable container
instead. Provided by Friends of the Earth http://www.foe.co.uk/
