The Community Mission Blog - b.friend
During my working day I encounter a wide variety of different community projects, which aim to target different problems they see around them. Our guest blogger today tells of her journey to implementing a project for churches in Bristol to get involved with and the impact it has had. Sam Sayer works part time as project manager for b.friend in Bristol. For the rest of the time she looks after 2 growing boys, endeavours to stay fit and tries to avoid the housework. Sam and her family attend St. Matthews, Kingsdown.
Each and every week there are column inches in our newspapers devoted to immigration. Asylum seekers and refugees are rarely portrayed in the press in a positive light and unless you actually meet these strangers seeking sanctuary here in UK and experience the person behind the media myth, you may be forgiven for not delving deeper. But the Bible speaks clearly about drawing alongside the poor and marginalised and that includes those who may have come from a very different culture to ourselves.
