One of the positive things to come out of the Westminster attack is the stories of bravery as people tried to help those affected, of care for them and their families at the time and afterwards. I've also been impressed with those Muslims speaking out and saying that violence has no place in their religion - or indeed in any true religion. The human chain across Westminster Bridge was particularly moving.

agreed about the human chain

you and readers may also like to know about two churches - one Anglican, one Methodist and their neighbouring Shia mosque in a North London borough who have a programme of visiting each other's worship, shared community work and well, just enjoying outings together and who are planning to do more.There is an article onthe MCB website here

That's lovely too. I was very impressed t'other Christmas at the sheer range of faith-based groups from around Yorkshire and beyond who went over to Hebden Bridge after the floods.
