Together, Harry and Dorothy are heading up Dignity Restored. Prior to this, they were the leaders of a residential Community – the Christian Renewal Centre, Rostrevor, Northern Ireland – for reconciliation, prayer and spiritual renewal.
Over Christmas and the New Year, I was reading Jim Wallis’ book “America’s Original Sin – Racism, White Privilege and the Bridge to a New America.” In the Chapter entitled, Welcoming the Stranger, my attention was drawn to two short sentences, “Our politics is stuck.” and “And stuck politics hurts people.” He could as easily have been making the observation about the political deadlock in the Northern Ireland Assembly and its decision-making process (or lack of it!), which has been stuck for the last 15 months! Most certainly people on all sides of the political spectrum are feeling the pain of it!
