EU Referendum

Which neighbours are we talking about: those in our local communities, in Europe, in the wider world? Does economic union help our relationship with some nations while hindering others and how does that impact the person living down the road? Does the way the European Union makes laws, policies or procedures aid or impede our Christian duty? These are the questions that I think should be of primary importance as June approaches, these are the questions that we should be asking as we search for our response."
