Now 'virtually' - The Place to Be

Are there any jobs that the coronavirus pandemic has not affected in some way or another? I struggle to name even one.

The impact of the crisis on our working lives has been enormous. 856,500 people signed up for unemployment-related benefits in April according to the UK’s Office for National Statistics, and 9 million are currently on the government’s furlough scheme.

If you’re taking a walk, consider prayer walking!

Prayer walking is a type of intercessory prayer that involves walking to or near a particular place while praying. As you prayer walk, your prayers extend beyond your own concerns, focusing directly on the needs of others and opening yourself to see them with God’s eyes and heart.

George Floyd is the latest in a long line of black people who, in recent years, have died at the hands of the police in America. This has led to a global outcry against racism, demanding fairness and equality in interpersonal relationships. But more than this, justice requires us to root out and re-order any system, structure, or narrative which privileges white people over people of colour and their cultures, norms, and perspectives.

Many consider racism against black people to be an American problem, but Britain’s imperial history has given us our own particular brand. While many white people would publicly denounce overtly racist behaviour, many of our systems are inherently racist and some people remain willing and conscious participants in them.
