Churches Update

The Labour Party's latest Churches Update is now out. Focusing on the General Election, it begins with a message from Labour leader Ed Miliband. Writing about Labour's links with the churches, Ed Miliband comments: 

"As the Leader of the Labour Party I am proud of our movement’s roots in the Christian tradition. That tradition underpins our conviction about the importance of social action and our belief in the power of community transformation. "

The Churches Update also includes contributions from the CEOs of Christian organisations involved in a variety of social action and campaigning, saying what they would like to see from the next government.

The Churches Update can be downloaded here.

This week Pastor Bill Johnson, leader of the influential Bethel Church in California, published this post, in which he explained his justifications for voting for Donald Trump. Martin Holst, a member of the Christians on the Left executive, gives his thoughts in response.

Many people are surprised – and more than a little concerned - at the choice of Donald Trump for President by the American electorate. To them he seems a mystifying choice, totally unsuited in both temperament and character, for the immense responsibilities of this office. It may sound like hyperbole, but the prayer on the lips of many was ‘Lord, have mercy’ followed by a heart cry: why, oh why, when there is so much uncertainty, friction and trouble around the world, has the Lord allowed such a man to be elected President?
