Love your neighbour

 ‘Love Your Neighbour, Do Something Kind Today’ was launched outside the Council House on Friday 1st July at 9.30am as a response to a rise in racist attacks.

This initiative is being supported by members of the council, business, faith communities, the arts, humanists and many others.

Bishop’s Comment: Acts of Kindness

Bishop David writes: “In front of Birmingham Council House on 1st July uniformed army officers, on their way to St Philip’s Cathedral to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme, were photographed holding brand new Love Your Neighbour posters.

“The distance between the military machine of First World War Belgium and the commitment to acts of kindness in 21st Century Birmingham seem immense.

“Yet the same hopes and fears of humanity swirl around as we attempt to resolve our differences and find a way forward following the referendum result of 23rd June.
