Bishop Graham launches social media encouragement over 12 days of Christmas

23 December 2020

Contributors from across the Diocese of Norwich have come together to provide daily encouragements throughout the 12 days of Christmas in this most unusual year.

“What can we send to encourage others during the Twelve Days of Christmas this year? Two turtle doves, a partridge and a pear tree are not the most practical things,” says the Rt Revd Graham Usher, Bishop of Norwich.

“I believe that our greatest gift is our time. Many people will need support through these challenging days when so many are lonely, isolated or just need their spirits lifting. Please join me in loving your neighbours:

LOOK OUT – for those on their own or lonely

LISTEN IN – to people’s stories, giving them your time

LOVE KINDLY – so that we reduce stress at a challenging time

“If anyone comes to mind as you read this, please give them a call or knock on their door and speak, from a safe distance.”

Twelve local contributors from across the diocese will offer us a thought on these ideas to provoke action each day, starting on Christmas Day. You’ll be able to access them via all the diocesan social media channels; on TwitterFacebook, and Instagram.
