NW NJPN E-Bulletin June 2021

The NW NJPN E-Bulletin for June leads with a moving poem highlighting the current escalation of violence in the Holy Land with a link to last week’s main NJPN bulletin devoted exclusively to articles and action ideas about the conflict. Eye-witness accounts of the devastating impact of Covid-19 on the Indian population, especially in the poorer areas, is given by six religious Sisters. There is also coverage of the Pastoral Letter for Pentecost issued by the Bishops of England and Wales with a focus on the pressing issue of climate change, encouraging news from Operation Noah that the Methodist, Unitarian and Free Churches have all voted to disinvest from fossil fuels. and a report of this month’s NJPN AGM by Zoom with a talk on homeschooling during Covid and two follow-up opinion pieces. Other reports look at ways parishes can be more welcoming to deaf people, lobbying for inclusive language in the Lectionary by the Scottish Laity Network and how a popular television programme is helping highlight the story of Sophie Lancaster, a hate crime victim.  All this plus resources and diary dates. Please read and pass on.
