Christians are called upon to ‘turn the world the right way up’ in the Easter message from St Edmundsbury’s acting bishop.

Rt Rev Dr David Thomson, acting bishop of the St Edmundsbury and Ipswich Diocese, said today: “We are consuming ourselves and our world to death. We are locked into a system which sees the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. We are living the wrong way up.

”This Easter, will you join those Easter candidates, will you join me, will you join Jesus, in saying yes to turning the world the right way up again?

“Will you follow his example and ask his help to put giving, not getting, at the heart of your life, to live for others not yourself?”

He added: “Here in Suffolk, now, ordinary people are doing extraordinary things in the strength Jesus gives to run food banks and night shelters, launching charities and ethical businesses, serving in caring professions and public life, just being good neighbours down their street.

“Join the movement. Live the light. Be the Easter people of today.”
