An open letter to the UK after the General Election

Dear UK

child drawingFirst of all, thank you  to so many of you for taking part in the General Election. There are many people in the world who would love to have the opportunity to express their views in the way that you have.

To those who will be in government, please remember that what you have been given by the people of this country is a gift – you have been given the opportunity to serve, not to rule.

To those who are disappointed not to be in government, please remember that prophetic voices usually come from the margins.

To those who are rejoicing about the result, please remember that you have won an election, not a war, and those in parliament serve all of their constituents whether or not those people voted for them.

To those who are saddened by the result, please remember that you can still work to try to bring about some of the changes for which you have hoped and voted.

And to all of you, regardless of which political party you voted for, God is for you and would welcome the opportunity for a chat.

Be blessed, be a blessing

  1. I have wasted a lifetime almost 70 years trying to work with prayer and action for a fairer society and once again the electorate in England spits in my face. The crowd continues to call out for Barabbas as it has always done and Psalm 72 doesn’t do it for me any more. Time to give up.
