Thoughts from your President, Maxine Paul I do hope those of you who came enjoyed the service and AGM at the Cathedral last month. How lovely it was to see so many of you there and to come together to worship, to share what has been happening during the year and to look to the future. It was also such a privilege to have Bishop Lynne with us and to hear about how hard her experience was as a single mum in church. It was so inspirational that she was able to hold on in faith that “all will be well with God” to bring her to where she is today. We are in the middle of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender[1]based Violence and it is shame there is no formal prayer diary for the 16 days from Mary Sumner House, but I do hope that you have been able to use the prayers we have sent out via your branch leaders or join in on Facebook or WhatsApp. Do try to wear a purple domestic abuse awareness ribbon during this time. You may have been able to set up a “red chair” display at church – I was given the opportunity by my minister to speak about RISE UP Against Domestic Abuse as part of our Safeguarding Sunday service. I was also permitted to put a red chair in the room during Diocesan Synod on The Global Day of Action. Don’t forget to ask if you can put your RISE UP posters in church or make peace doves to raise awareness of domestic abuse 365 days of the year as well during the 16 Days of Activism and even see if you can get your church to pledge its support too.
