This last few weeks have been a nightmare for vast numbers of people around the world, particularly those who are involved with the financial world. Various Governments have pumped billions of Dollars, Sterling or Euros into their economies in an attempt to stop the financial world from collapsing completely. We have seen an unprecedented cooperation between nations, everyone working together for the common good.
I have been impressed by all this cooperation, and indeed, encouraged. If we can all work together in this way then, surely, it’s not beyond the nations of the world to work together to stamp out poverty, conflict, and war around the world. We are all human beings, regardless of our colour, class or creed and as such should work to see fairness, equality and peace all around this world. Let’s use this crisis around the world to start working together for the common good of all humankind and not just the financial world. After all it is exactly what Jesus taught us two thousand years ago, so let’s give it our best shot!
