"Each of us should please our neighbours for their good, to build them up." (Romans 15:2)
This week has been recognised as Mental Health Awareness Week. In our ‘normal’ day to day lives we rush about doing things for our own benefit without really taking time to consider even those living right next door to us. The friendships and care of others which have been forged throughout this lockdown period has been truly transformational, especially for those confined to barracks during this ordeal and I know, from feedback from those at the receiving end, that they are greatly nourished both physically and mentally by the outpouring of concern for their welfare by total strangers. Being there for our neighbours is one of the most important things we can carry over into our “normal” daily routine - building each other up for the benefit of our whole community.
