BBC Radio 4 broadcasts Bishop Guli's Lent Talk

Bishop Guli led an inspiring 15-minute Lent Talk on BBC Radio 4 on 8 April 2020, in which she reminded us of our identitiy as children of God, with moving references to her own personal struggles with identity and that of her parents. 

In her meditation entitled 'Identity and Community', she told listeners a moving description of her parents' grave which carries words from Paul's letter to the Ephesians, declaring that in heaven noone is a stranger or foreigner. Bishop Guli's address also included these encouraging words:
"Of course our roots are important and our families shape us and give us a sense of place in the world. But the point is that we don’t need to be constrained by the boundaries within which life seeks to encase us.  For in these words of Jesus from the cross there is encouragement to look wider and higher and deeper than those things which tie us to narrow ways of belonging. According to the Christian story, whoever you are, wherever you come from, there is a common identity that binds us all as children of God, each uniquely made in the divine image and loved as part of the glorious diversity of creation."
