The future of Britain is at stake both for now and the generation to come.
It is therefore, imperative that we do not negate our
responsibility in making our voice heard. You/we make a difference. The future of this earth and for generations to come rests in our hands, for which we are responsible and will be held accountable by our descendants.
Our future is somewhat apocalyptic, as even those who have no belief in God, sense that there is some problem, with the way we are treating this beautiful, fragile, yet complicated earth.
We are all caretakers of this earth, for the earth is the Lord’s and the beauty thereof.
Mahatma Ghandi says,
If you want to change the world start with yourself.
As we prepare for theatre upcoming elections, let us pray for our government and leaders that they may lead with God’s grace and integrity.
