Thought For The Day – Tuesday December 13th 2022
We continue to think of the people of Ukraine, suffering evil invasion, abuse, oppression, rape, war and displacement. Currently, missile and drone attacks are devastating Ukraine’s power supply. These are leading to darkness in Ukraine, with no water and no electricity in the middle of winter.
An image from space on 23rd November (pictured above) shows Ukraine in darkness. Medical and hospital operations in Ukraine are being conducted by torchlight.
A recent BBC News documentary entitled “Ukraine: What’s Next?”, presented by Frank Gardner, explored the current situation.
Recently, “Time Magazine” named Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky and “the spirit of Ukraine” as its 2022 Person of the Year. The famous award goes to an event or person deemed to have had the most influence on global events over the past 12 months.
Meet Liudmyla: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_a6DzyxIO0 In this “Sky News” report, Liudmyla shows immense courage, care and resilience in delivering aid to Ukraine.
We will be collecting for Ukrainian refugees in the next week. Local charity UK Aid are sending a lorry out to Ukraine again on Boxing Day to get there in time for the Orthodox Christmas. Any donations of tinned and dried food, toiletries, warm clothes for all ages and games and toys which do not rely on English, would be very much appreciated. Please bring any items to Room 8.
We continue to think of those suffering throughout the world and pay tribute to all who bring help and healing, love and life.
