“But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere. And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.”
James 3:17-18 NLT.”
My wife, Liza Cucco, used to run the Hackney Foodbank in East London. I served for over three years with her in supporting food drives, moving food, sorting food and volunteering on weekends when possible. The Christmas and Easter periods were peak times in the year when food drives, needs from those in crises and the supply of food was increased. However, during the current climate, the CoVid pandemic, the need for food is beyond any crises she or I witnessed. Its in the name. Its a pandemic.
The article I have selected from the New York times draws us to a crises for us in real time where families, parents and guardians who are usually living pay check to pay check, myself included, find themselves in poverty, without work and having to give up their accommodation, resettle with parents and find ways around the ongoing issues.
