United nations

A longing for peace and goodwill grasps peoples who are weary of war. Sharing the care of the earth’s natural beauties motivates people shattered by their destruction. Loss makes us more agreeable to compromise and reconciliation. Wealth and power brings disdain for any impediment to the progress of prejudice, fear and disharmony which may be challenged by conciliation between nations.

He shall judge between the nations, and shall arbitrate for many peoples; they shall beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore. Isaiah 2:4

The integration of refugees in the UK is assisted by members who provide English speaking lessons, thus modelling peace and respect between nations. In the province of York a family of eight were sponsored, supplied with house equipment, school places and uniforms and medical care organised. The United Nations on a local scale. Thanks be to God.
