Peter Green: June 2016
Unless we have already used our postal vote, the Big Question we are asked to vote on today is, "Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?"
As an ecumenical group of churches reminds us, "The referendum is surrounded by controversy and because opinions differ, so does the interpretation of the facts. Christians may not agree on how to vote in the referendum but we can each reflect thoughtfully and prayerfully on the issues involved."
So on Christ's Great Commandment to 'love your neighbour', our neighbours tomorrow will include all those who voted differently to us. Whichever way the vote goes, may we remember to love one another as we love ourselves.
