Here are Editor Louise Willmot's thoughts on the latest issue; “‘What in the world are you worried about?’ Where to begin you may say, with recent world events. So how can we sustain ourselves when things look bleak? For The Right Revd David Walker, Bishop of Manchester, who reflects on his city’s response to a tragic act of terrorism, love is most definitely the answer.
“Thankfully, those of us directly affected by such terrible acts as that visited on Manchester are rare. Financial worries, health concerns and family matters are much more common to us all. In this edition of Manna we talk to people in our diocese living with and giving hope in some challenging circumstances and we also gain an insight into what is worrying our young people and how we can help them.
“‘Where is God in all this?’ is a common refrain when things are tough, whether in the media or perhaps from someone you know. Dr Tim Davy, research fellow at Redcliffe College, shares his insight into the Book of Job to help us reflect on that question, while Rural Affairs Adviser Rob Walrond and The Revd Joy Hawes share their feelings of hope as they talk about their faith and their work.”
