Dame Sarah Mullally says amid terror sorrow we saw 'the very best of humanity'

by Cara Bentley

In a column, Dame Sarah Mullally, who will officially be installed as the new Bishop of London on 12th May, said building lasting communities 'which demonstrate our commonality and build resilience' would be the real test of a permanent tribute to those who have experienced the suffering from terror attacks. 

She wrote that despite all the violence and pain of the last year, there were glimmers of hope in the way people responded. She said: "amid all this sorrow, we saw acts of generosity which reflected the very best of humanity."

She praised the contributions of "healthcare workers, first responders, police, neighbours, the public, faith leaders and many more", particularly how they "came together to show the resilience of our communities in the face of terrorists."

Rt Rev Sarah, currently Bishop of Crediton said all the atrocities of the past year should encourage us to build strong communities. To do this, she said: "requires us to understand we have more in common than divides us."

She ended with the gospel's relevance to this message: "This week, Christians have been retelling the narrative of Jesus' death. We recall what God did in the death and resurrection of Christ in the past, which points us to a future without pain and death but holds us here and now - that is hope."
