The Debt Saviours

Don’t miss ‘The Debt Saviours’ on BBC 2 at 9pm tonight!
Across Britain more than four million people have debts considered unsustainable. Responsibility for advising and helping these vulnerable people is increasingly falling to charities. One of the biggest is Christians Against Poverty (CAP), led by its charismatic founder, Dr John Kirkby CBE, pictured below.

In this access all areas documentary, director Phillip Wood (Chasing Dad, Rehab), follows Dr Kirkby and some of the charity’s debt coaches. CAP has more than 6,000 staff and volunteers around the country providing help to people who often face losing their homes. The film shows how the home visits often include an offer to pray with clients and asks whether the real motivation is debt relief or bringing people to Jesus, or both.

That God is present . . .

. . .  at death as God is present in all life, makes it possible for us to journey through sorrow and pain. This is evident in the story of a young widower whose son could not sleep once they had returned from the funeral service. They slept in the same bed but the boy was still restless:

‘Finally, the boy reached out in the darkness and placed his hand on his father’s face asking, “Daddy, is your face toward me?” Assured by his father’s words, and by his own touch, that his father’s face was indeed toward him, the boy said, “If your face is toward me, I think I can go to sleep.” And in a little while he was quiet.’

As we grieve today, we are comforted by the knowledge that God’s face is turned towards us, is turned towards the whole church family.
