Watching the war in Syria for the last four years has been depressing, frustrating and disempowering, but Harriet Harris, my friend and colleague at the University of Edinburgh Chaplaincy Centre, has come up with a great initiative, which we launched this evening on the beach in North Berwick.
We lit the first beacon this evening.
On Sunday 20th November, we will light many more.
If you'd like to get involved, you can organise your own event, or at the least, light a candle in your window, photograph it, and share it on social media with the hashtag, #alightforaleppo
Let's make this light travel round the world!
