The Vicar writes: Jesus calls us to love our neighbour and challenges any limit we put on who that neighbour might be. As Christians we believe that he means our global neighbour, not just those close at hand. Across the world there are a billion people in extreme poverty – trying to survive on only £1 a day. God’s faithfulness gives up hope that extreme poverty can be ended, that loving our neighbour is a sign of God’s kingdom. Christian Aid Week (10-17 May) is an important act of Christian witness right across Britain and Ireland – it is a week when churches of all denominations come together and step out into their local communities to support Christian Aid in challenging poverty across the world.
