Today on the way back from the office I went down the south bank of the themes. Theres a great smoothy bar ( in a trailer) I like. So with it being nice off I went. It's still very strange even almost a year on waking to the sound of Big Ben walking through Parliament Square seeing those who govern the country, those who I've only seen through the papers or TV.
So parliament isn't really part of my Patch ( it's the wrong side of the river) but what happens there has a ripple effect to those in my patch.
Some of those I know work there in different ways from MP to cleaner. Without one the other could not do what they do.
The decisions that are made here have lasting effect on the community that stands within the sound of the bell of Big Ben.
To be able to walk here an pray for those in leadership, that they may rule and vote not for their own gain or self interest but that they will stand for justice and peace that they will have the courage to make the difficult decisions and stand by them.
we are told to pray for our leaders what a reminder here in our patch each time the chimes ring.
