Make Your Voice Heard ---- by using your finger

As a follow-on to my 'own arrangement' evening service in September I would like to urge everyone to think about joining campaigns seeking justice for the marginalised, and better lives for those affected by war, disease, climate change, and all forms of poverty.

You don't have to have spare cash for donations or be fit enough to join rallies or marches (but you can do this too!), or have lots of time to spare. If you own a computer all you have to do is exercise your finger, adding your name to a petition and pressing 'send'. By doing this with careful and prayerful consideration we can add our voice very easily to those of others calling for change,

Here are a few examples of current campaigns;-

www.unicef.org.uk Right now, refugee children are alone and exposed to danger, while their family members wait desperately for them in the UK. The Government can and must change this.

www.amnesty.org.uk Call on Boris Johnson to speak out for UK citizens imprisoned in Iran.

www.oxfam.org.uk Urge the prime minister to share responsibility with other world leaders in providing safety and hope for people forced to flee violence, poverty and disaster.

www.leprosymission.org.uk Pledge your support to the United4Change campaign and sign the petition to stop age-old discrimination against people affected by leprosy in India.

By regularly visiting the websites of charities you are interested in you can be updated about the progress of current campaigns and join in with future action.
