Christians in Scotland have been pleading for bread. Specifically, living bread. Amongst other voices, Canon Tom White – a parish priest from one of the most deprived communities of the UK – will be boldly challenging the Scottish government tomorrow for their decision to impose a blanket ban on all places of worship. His appeal to the public for financial support on JustGiving is ongoing.
Yesterday, the government offered spiritually-hungry Christians an olive branch.
Just days before they are set to face the priest, an offering was made from Holyrood, updating plans put in place two week ago. Priorities remain the same. Organised group sport will resume this Friday. A full fortnight later – all going well – the government intend to allow churches to resume on 26 March – just in time for Easter.
