A number of churches and organisations are joining together for a day of prayer and fasting on Sunday, 2nd January 2022. When I was contacted and asked if Tearfund Ireland would consider supporting this endeavour, my decision was immediate. Yes, we will support it.

All people are created in the image of God. This is not a mere, wistful nicety nor is it solely a doctrinal position. This is a statement of truth. A fundamental, axiomatic, biblical truth. God created all people. The act of creation entails intent, which implies purpose which, in turn, indicates God had a reason for creating different people groups. His command to ‘be fruitful, multiply and have dominion’ was an instruction to guide our role as stewards of Creation – not to be used against our fellow human beings.
All people are created in the image of God. Therefore, we believe that people of all races have an inherent dignity as an individual who reflects the image and purpose of God.
