This December you may be aware that the government will be rolling out its Universal Credit Scheme in Hull, a new social security system that is currently being rolled out across the country. The Methodist Church, in partnership with other denominations through the Joint Public Issues Team (JPIT),has expressed deep concerns about the impact of the new benefits system on the poorest and most vulnerable in our communities.
The Methodist Church's campaigning, through JPIT, on Universal Credit is part of our prophetic task as Christians to call and seek justice for the poor. As we focus ourselves on Christ, we see the one who demonstrated the reality of God's Kingdom; one marked by grace, love, hope, justice and peace.
There are many ways that we at Christmas can help the vulnerable in this Christmas period. By donating to food banks, providing meals, pastoral support, and by echoing God's call for justice. Christ enters into our world as the bearer of light and hope for all people and asks us to carry this light. During this busy Christmas time I encourage you to take the time to share that Christmas hope in real and practical
A very merry Christmas to all
