Some words from the Church of England’s Guidance, following the Government’s move to Step 4.
Within the Church we believe that everyone is known and loved individually by God and that as many members within one body we are called to be responsible to and for one another, respecting the more vulnerable whose suffering is our suffering (1 Cor 12:12-27). The move to step 4 means we are being asked to take even more personal responsibility around coronavirus than when we were compelled to adhere to Government restrictions.’
We continue, therefore, to reflect on what it means to love our neighbour as ourselves.
