Once again, the archbishops of Canterbury and York have sent a letter to its priests to share with their congregations which urges them:
“to set aside apathy and cynicism and to participate, and encourage others to do the same. At a practical level that could mean putting on a hustings event for candidates, volunteering for a candidate, or simply making sure to vote on Thursday 8th June”.
The letter could be used as an excellent example of how religion can encourage social change because it is encouraging British people to support the an “an outward looking and generous country” in addition to other progressive ideas.
