Archbishop of York's peace vigil

On a Sunday it is always good to reflect on something positive being done in the world of faith. The peace vigil by the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, is one such event.

He is giving up his holiday in Saltzburg (good choice for a holiday, by the way) to lead a peace vigil in York Minster. He will be there 24 hours a day for seven days, leading the prayer every hour on the hour.

This is precisely the sort of leadership which religious leaders should be showing. Well done Dr John!

"The archbishop hopes people will join him in prayer and fasting for peace between Israel and Lebanon, and good community relations in the UK. "

Amen to that.
