March 2019 Edition

Spring is becoming more apparent (for those in the UK at least) and with it the signs of hope for new life. Our Living Lent community has been flourishing too, with almost 500 people receiving our daily mailshot of inspiration and encouragement. Over 200 people are part of our Living Lent Facebook groups, sharing tips and stories. You can find out how to join in with these below.

We were delighted at the beginning of this month to see progress on how the UK Government will determine who is in need of support, by taking the step to also measure food poverty. Yet we all continue to await progress on Brexit. Lucy Berry, our Poet-in-Residence, has filmed a poem in response to current developments entitled ‘Christ Knows’ – you can watch it by following the link in this newsletter.

February 2019 Edition

The past month has seen the team continue to get excited about Living Lent, and becoming part of a community who are committing to respond to the call to climate action.

We’ve also continued to explore how we can create a welcoming environment for those seeking refuge in the UK, with poetry from our poet-in-residence.

As you might have seen, debate has been raised around the UK’s international aid budget, and we’ve taken some time this month to respond.

This month’s newsletter also includes an up to date response on Universal Credit, an invitation to come and work with JPIT and a list of some of the things we’re looking forward to.

With every blessing,

January 2019 Edition

This is the ONE HUNDREDTH issue of our JPIT Newsletter and we have so much to be thankful for. Over 2,000 people receive the Newsletter each month and it is a privilege to be able to inform, inspire and provoke our readers to take action on justice and peace issues.
Since our last newsletter, the plight of those crossing the English Channel in an effort to enter the UK has been making the headlines, some of the inadequacies of the Universal Credit system have been acknowledged by UK Government, and of course the continuing wrangling and debate over Brexit has dominated political discussion.
We enter the new year in the midst of turmoil and uncertainty, but are more keenly aware than ever of our need to raise awareness of and speak up for the rights of the ignored and forgotten, the weak and the oppressed, and to represent and strive for the values of God’s Kingdom. We are thankful for many opportunities in the year ahead to make a difference for the common good and are grateful to you for the role that you play in bringing light and life to the lives of many.
With every blessing,
