PRAXIS 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,

PRAXIS Newsletter

January 2019 Edition

Click here to view this 100th 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,
