Love Your Enemies - How and Why?

These are interesting times in Northern Ireland where we work. Politicians who seem to have hated one another for generations are working together in government. In time we’ll see how effective they are but for now we see new relationships forming where before they didn’t exist. Change at a political level makes us think again about change at a personal level, and we listen again to Jesus as he says ‘Love your enemies’. Two questions present themselves: - ‘Why should I?’ ‘How do you expect me to do it anyway?’
