Newsletter items from the Justice & Peace Group Week Commencing  25-10-20

Live Simply Tip of the Week The second part of the Laudato Si’ pledge calls us to Live More Simply. In Laudato Si’ Pope Francis invites us to, “return to that simplicity which allows us to stop and appreciate the small things, to be grateful for the opportunities which life affords us, to be spiritually detached from what we possess, and not to succumb to sadness for what we lack.” (222). As a way to live Laudato’ Si, we invite you to look for ways to use less, to share more, and to focus on relationships instead of things.There’s 10 items in this series – one each week
Week 4. Waste less—Reduce food waste, and avoid throwing away food whenever possible. Always bring your own bags when going grocery shopping.

 

From Worthing For refugees Thank you very much for your continuing prayers for the Syrian refugees who have made their home in this area.
Please pray as often as you are able on the following lines:

  • For the wellbeing and continued growth towards independence of our refugee families.
  • For W4R workers and volunteers as they seek creative ways to support the families during restrictions resulting from the pandemic.
  • For W4R Trustees as they continue to work towards the overall vision of making Worthing a place of welcome, safety, integration and justice for all displaced people.
  • That news of the Language Cafe, aimed at helping refugees and asylum seekers improve their English, may reach new contacts.
  • For those very many refugees who are due to be resettled in the UK but have been placed on hold in refugee camps due to the coronavirus.                                                                                                                                      With renewed thanks for your prayers, and all good wishes.
