The World Crisis now ongoing was not foreseen by the ACI steering group when we launched our appeal for help to give this website a facelift fit for phones in February!
But that world crisis has been building for decades, as Greta Thunberg, then 15 pointed out when she went on school strike in Sweden in August 2015 to say ‘enough already‘ – to be followed by young people all over the world.
Deep sorrow will fall as many of those we love leave us, but for all Christians and many more of the world’s faith traditions, the belief is strong that that no one is ever lost and that it is always from the tears of today that a better tomorrow is born.
Already we have had word from one of Ireland’s Catholic bishops that what is ongoing – inside the church – and now outside – will change the church forever.
So thanks to all who contributed to this ‘New Look‘ – and a challenge:
Help us make this website a vital contribution to what is now a global war against despair, doubt, loneliness and fear of the future. And to build the very different church of tomorrow.
As I write, a neighbour is shopping for our family of three, because to protect one member the other two have decided not to leave the house either, for twelve weeks from now. All over the world much the same is happening, as each of us realises that we depend for our very survival on the person next to us. World leaders are for the very first time in world history on the same page, saving lives from the same enemy – and a huge US aircraft carrier is totally disabled in Guam, in the Pacific, by the very same invisible enemy that threatens your family.
