"Undertake one act of kindness" today

Chester Cathedral is promoting Mental Health Week (18-23 May) by inviting people to "undertake one act of kindness" for someone. 

If you are on the receiving end of an act of kindness, please let the Cathedral know so they can give thanks in prayer and collate a selection of good news stories. 

The Chief Executive of Mental Health Foundation wrote: ‘Last week, I waited in a socially distanced queue outside the supermarket as the rain started to fall. One of the staff noticed we were getting wet. He scurried away to find a pile of umbrellas, carefully disinfected the handles and passed them out with a smile. To my surprise, my eyes started to well up. At a time when I felt alone, I suddenly felt connected.  If I asked you the last time you gave or experienced kindness, you would tell me stories of when you felt moved, protected, held, seen, loved.’

Canon Jane Brooke says: "At this time of lockdown any act of kindness brings us together and demonstrates that we are all important and worthy of love. Acts of kindness surround us with God’s love and allow us to show others they are indeed deeply loved. The example of Jesus Christ was the ultimate example for us of loving those around us and those who are at a distance.  

This week can we all try to undertake one act of kindness to someone whom we don’t normally relate to? It can start today!

If you receive an act of kindness please email Canon Jane Brooke (no name need be mentioned of who did the act of kindness).
