The Bishop of Colchester writes in the Church Times on the UN’s new anti-nuclear treaty

Roger Morris, Bishop of Colchester, explains why Anglican bishops are pressuring the UK Government to sign the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in a sign-on letter, and what we can do about it.

#InvestingInChange got a shout out in the article:

There is one simple, practical thing that individuals and churches can do to support the TPNW.

We probably all have relationships with financial institutions that may invest money in companies involved with the production, or maintenance, of nuclear weapons. By investigating the practices of those who invest on our behalf, we can make sure that our money is not being used for purposes to which we are fundamentally opposed.

The Nuclear Weapons Finance Research Group has produced a report that sets out in detail the investment policies of institutions in the UK. In considering our investments, we would do well to remember the words of Jesus in St Matthew’s Gospel: “For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be.”

Roger Morris, Bishop of Colchester.
