Responding to terror

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the recent terrorist attacks in London and Manchester, and with their friends and families. Such acts of violence are designed to strike fear in our hearts but instead, as has been so evident, they have the effect of emphasising our common humanity and increasing our resolve.

These have been attacks on our way of life too – on our democracy and tolerance of different views. The General Election has many people of different faiths standing as candidates, across the political spectrum. This is something to be celebrated, and stands in stark contrast to the extremist views of those who have taken lives in the name of faith.
