In an era of increasing nationalism and polarisation, Christian World Service continues to reach across the boundaries that divide us in both word and deed, in recognition that we are all one another’s neighbours and are all in this project called life together. I commend the work of CWS to the Church as an opportunity to look beyond our own immediate neighbourhoods, our own truncated vision of what being followers of Jesus means, and to seek to partner with others in more needy parts of our planet. As retiring pastor of a congregation that has had a long history of supporting life-giving work in others parts of the world, I’m reminded of the expression of one of our legendary leaders that ‘The light that shines farthest, shines brightest at home’.

I am honoured to endorse the Christian World Service 2020 Christmas Appeal.  It has been a strange and a difficult year for all. Some have lost income, and not able to be present with love ones.  We must all keep each other in our prayers. And do what we can for each other.
Keep up your good works.
