As children of God we are born to be witnesses to the truth. But how do we know what the truth is? Listen to the voice within and you will hear the words of the Lord directing you to love your fellow human beings, to show them respect and compassion at all times, never wishing hurt or harm to anyone. This is the truth preached and lived by your saviour Jesus.....St John’s Social Justice and Peace Committee)
