A great privilege to be included, but the article left out an important part of what I wanted to say – this was my contribution in full:

All human beings are of equal and infinite worth, regardless of their wealth, ethnicity, or anything else that can be used to mark people off one from another. It is that belief which is at the heart of my Christian faith, and which inspires me to recognise the dignity of those who are forced to seek sanctuary far from home. Among refugees I have seen countless examples of extraordinary courage, tenacity, patience and kindness. It is an honour to me to be able to offer what support I can, to walk alongside on part of the long journey towards sanctuary.
