Love never fails. Coronavirus impacts all of us. But love unites us. Christian Aid Week runs from 10 May - 16 May and will still be a joyful celebration.
Each year the congregation of Southwark Cathedral commits itself to supporting Christian Aid. We shake collection tins in Borough Market, hold a 'Big Brekkie', sell books and,of course, pass around those familiar Christian Aid envelopes to those who come into the church.
But this year these things are not as easily done so we are asking for donations via Just Giving.
Covid-19 is having many effects around the world. But the effects on charities and the effects on the poorest communities combined make this year's appeal even more important. We have set ourselves a challenging target in this challenging year. Please help us achieve it.
God has a heart for all people, we know that. But as one hymn puts it, 'Dearer to God are the prayers of the poor.' Our prayers combined with our actions are to support the most needy and the most vulnerable, wherever and whoever they are.
