We must hope that our national faith leaders find paths of reconciliation, but what about us in the holiest road in Middlesex, Oaklands Gate!? And indeed in our homes and streets with our neighbours who are Methodist believers? This afternoon, I went to wish Sue Male, the Reverend of the Methodist Church in Oaklands Gate, ‘mazal tov,’ on her ordination at the same Methodist Conference. The Conference certainly got one thing right as Sue is a friend of our Community and to my mind understands how one can most affectively work towards a common purpose, just like the French football team of 98, working together.
Our common purpose is peace for everyone in the Middle East, Arab and Israeli, Christian, Jew and Muslim and all those who have found themselves to be living in one of history’s hot-spots. So how do we work together?
