MESSAGE FROM THE MINISTER

Dear Friends,

There is a story told in the Bible about the Good Samaritan; it’s told by Jesus in answer to the question ‘Who is my neighbour?’ after a rich young man has been reminded that his religious law asks of him to …
‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ And to ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ Mark 12:30-31
The moral of story responds that your neighbour is the one who is seemingly least deserving of your love and help that you can find; whenever and wherever they are – and everyone else too – including yourself.

There is an interpretation of this reading that goes like this:
Love your neighbour: your homeless neighbour, your Muslim neighbour, your black neighbour, your gay neighbour, your white neighbour, your Christian neighbour, your atheist neighbour, your racist neighbour, your addicted neighbour…
…to which at this time I would add…..your neighbour who voted to remain in the EU, your neighbour who voted to leave the EU.
…because if you love all of your neighbours and they love you then we will also want the very best for each other and then maybe we can heal the divisions in our country that are every bit as deep as those between the Jews and the Samaritans of the original story.

I have been struck this year yet again by the generosity and love that is shown in Cheddington for our neighbours. Especially the love and support given to the families of Dan and George. I hope and pray that this generous spirit that moves amongst us as a community remains.

With blessing for this month of February,
Rev. Donna Broadbent-Kelly
