December 2015

The theme at the Switching on of the Stormont Christmas tree lights was welcome. Speaker Mitchell McLaughlin said " whether you choose to come to NI or are sent, you are welcome" Justin Kouame from NI community of refugees and Asylum seekers thanked all for their welcome to foreigners who want to make NI their home.. Sing For Lifechoir, made up of those affected by cancer, sang the song "Falling Down" which included these lines

To those who want to extend the Air Strikes to include Syria, the language of moderation can appear to be "weak" in the light of the catalogue of atrocities carried out globably by ISIS and in Syria by the forces of the Bashar al-Assad regime .

I would encourage all to take the time to read this joint statement from British Churches and be prayerful for our MPs today particularly.
