Compassion Stories- Week 2

Compassion Stories- Week 2

03 March 2021 by Alison Tsang

Over Lent, we are telling stories of forty ordinary disciples, around the Diocese of London.

People who are following Jesus and that’s led them to take action. Serving communities; challenging injustice; loving their neighbour.

Each day we tell a new story here, and on our Instagram Facebook, and Twitter feeds.

Inspiring, encouraging and challenging.

Our storytellers in their own words share a little of what they are involved in, and a little of how their faith in God motivates them and sustains them. Entering into another’s story, another’s life, and sharing the pain and joy and life that comes with that, on the path of discipleship of Christ.

We have compiled all of the six stories we’ve told this week here.

Here are stories from Alex, baking and blessing elderly neighbours;

Ben who has welcomed aslyum seekers to share his home;

Jackie who’s been changing the landscape of affordable housing in her borough;

Wayne who offers debt advice and hope to those in his community;

Enid who has been championing the cause of the environment for decades; and

Nicky who has been accompanying street sleepers through Covid lockdown.


And this week we’ll continue to tell stories: we’ll meet 6 more amazing, ordinary disciples. Starting with Debbie, who found God leading her to help people out of the darkness and hopelessness of debt through Christians Against Poverty.

Come with us, this week as we journey through Lent. We hope you’ll be encouraged and challenged in your own journey.
