London quiet but looting in other cities overnight

Overnight we had the best bit of good news in a few days. London was relatively peaceful. It seems the strong leadership decisions made by David Cameron yesterday worked. Large numbers of police on the streets proved a deterrent. There were outbreaks of looting in other parts of the UK, however, so this situation is not over. More details at BBC News – UK riots: Trouble erupts in English cities.

As things begin to calm down, communities will rally together I am sure. Let’s pray that churches will take the opportunity to connect well with their local authorities and help build social cohesion in the future. Personally I think the current situation is largely about criminal activity. But as the dust settles we will need to begin to turn our gaze to building a strong inclusive society.
