  1. It is wonderful to hear the Church speaking with clarity and authority on international aid and development issues.

    Bishop John reminds us that we should have confidence that others are also deeply concerned about those in developing nations whose lives are being made even worse by Climate Change when they did not bring this on themselves and are unable to address it.

    Let us contact our Parliamentary candidates and let them know of our concerns, seek their engagement in this issue, take their responses (or lack of them) into account when we cast our votes and hold the successful candidate to account thereafter.
