Letter from Karen

The 17th century poet and priest John Donne famously wrote, ‘No man is an island.’ Sometimes we forget just how connected we are. We need to be sensible and take the public health advice offered (and with due regard to our own vulnerabilities), without becoming unduly anxious. This current outbreak reminds us of our common humanity, irrespective of national borders, economic or social status, or anything else that usually divides us. St Paul describes the church as ‘the body of Christ’ – one body, made of many parts, or members. He says, ‘If one member suffers, all suffer together with it; if one member is honoured, all rejoice together with it’ (1 Cor. 12.26). The same could be said of our world: if part of it suffers, we are all affected.  Let’s be family for our neighbours. It’s something villages do so well.  Let’s be practical and play our part in seeking the health and wellbeing of everyone.

God bless us all
