I found myself at St James, Piccadilly to encourage a friend who is walking the 500 miles from London to Glasgow as part of the Camino to Cop.

On occasions, videos and photos can perhaps tell the story best. A lot was happening which meant a lot to be filmed.

Fasting for change

David Francis a Unitarian is reported as saying, “We don’t have to think alike to love alike.”

I would add, “We don't have to have the same passion to feel the passion of others.”

I recognise in my friend and in ‘XR people’ a passion to make a change. I don’t claim to be a Climate activist but I recognise the passion in them as the same passion in me.
