Welcome to Songs Of Praise, on this Mothering Sunday.

0:00:060:00:09

I've known some great mothers, my own and my wife

0:00:090:00:11

to name just a couple,

0:00:110:00:13

and today I meet two extraordinary mums,

0:00:130:00:16

the first right here in Brixton.

0:00:160:00:18

Let's form a circle!

0:00:190:00:20

To keep her son's legacy alive, she became a boxing coach.

0:00:200:00:25

Yes, a punching preacher!

0:00:250:00:26

SHE LAUGHS

0:00:260:00:28

And a mum who's fostered more than 20 children.

0:00:280:00:31

Josie d'Arby is joined by comedian Milton Jones to discover

0:00:320:00:36

what Comic Relief is cooking up.

0:00:360:00:38

I'm getting wood, I'm getting onions...

0:00:380:00:40

LAUGHTER

0:00:400:00:41

..which is weird, cos I didn't put any in.

0:00:410:00:43

And it's also the fourth Sunday in Lent, and the Archbishop of York

0:00:430:00:46

finds out why one girl gave up all her savings to buy a big purple bus.

0:00:460:00:52

We have some lovely music for you today,

0:01:020:01:04

and we begin with a hymn that speaks of divine love and human love,

0:01:040:01:08

so perfect for Mothering Sunday.

0:01:080:01:11

Right, open your arms out, so...

0:03:390:03:41

Lorraine Jones is a mum with many talents.

0:03:410:03:44

She has seven children and is a pastor in her church.

0:03:440:03:47

Three years ago she would never have imagined she'd also be

0:03:470:03:50

running a boxing gym.

0:03:500:03:52

ROCK MUSIC

0:03:520:03:54

Lorraine and her family live in Angell Town in Brixton.

0:03:540:03:57

In the past,

0:03:570:03:58

the area has had a lot of problems with youth violence

0:03:580:04:00

and, in 2014, Lorraine's son Dwayne was killed on the street.

0:04:000:04:06

-This is my home.

-Uh-huh.

0:04:070:04:09

And there's all my children here.

0:04:090:04:11

-And these are the pictures... of Dwayne.

-Yes.

0:04:130:04:16

-20 years old.

-Yes, yeah.

0:04:160:04:18

That's so young.

0:04:180:04:20

He was very fit.

0:04:200:04:22

-But very humorous...

-Yeah, you can see he's smiling...

0:04:220:04:25

You can see it in all his pictures, he's smiling.

0:04:250:04:28

How did you find out?

0:04:280:04:30

I literally saw Dwayne 45 minutes before the incident.

0:04:300:04:34

I just popped to the shops, got back, unpacked the shopping.

0:04:340:04:38

Two of his friends knocked the door

0:04:380:04:40

and said, "Mum, Mum, Dwayne's been stabbed." I said, "Is it serious?"

0:04:400:04:45

They said, "Yes, Mum." I said, "Do I need my car?"

0:04:450:04:47

They said, "No, Mum, it's just over there,"

0:04:470:04:50

pointing just literally about five minutes from here.

0:04:500:04:53

Dwayne had seen a young boy that he knew being chased

0:04:540:04:57

by a man with a knife and had run to help,

0:04:570:05:00

but he himself was attacked and fatally wounded.

0:05:000:05:04

The place where he fell has been turned into

0:05:040:05:06

a memorial by the local community.

0:05:060:05:09

The ribbons just bring me comfort.

0:05:090:05:12

It's where Dwayne was tragically struck down,

0:05:120:05:16

but it's a place that has become beautiful.

0:05:160:05:18

What is it that held you together through this?

0:05:180:05:22

I was helpless.

0:05:250:05:27

But I felt a strong presence...

0:05:290:05:32

of the Holy Spirit.

0:05:320:05:35

Peace.

0:05:350:05:36

And it's like I shifted into gear,

0:05:380:05:41

the gear of faith, strength and hope.

0:05:410:05:45

God has held me together and is holding us all together

0:05:460:05:51

as a family and as a community.

0:05:510:05:55

Lorraine wanted to do something to preserve Dwayne's memory.

0:05:570:06:01

-I didn't realise the extent of what he was doing until he died.

-Yeah.

0:06:010:06:06

He was working with the young people, doing the training

0:06:060:06:09

and boxing,

0:06:090:06:10

he was mentoring, he was motivating a lot of the young,

0:06:100:06:15

young boys, especially those that had come out of prison.

0:06:150:06:18

I was filled with compassion.

0:06:180:06:21

And I said, "OK, I'm going to set this up again."

0:06:210:06:25

And the help came from...

0:06:260:06:27

all over.

0:06:270:06:29

Lorraine worked closely with the local police to set up Dwaynamics.

0:06:310:06:35

It's a boxing gym for all ages, here in the heart of Brixton.

0:06:350:06:40

It's like family here.

0:06:400:06:42

And to help young people get off of the streets,

0:06:420:06:44

-I think it's really great.

-I think she's amazing.

0:06:440:06:48

She is probably one of the most inspiring people

0:06:480:06:51

I've ever met in my life.

0:06:510:06:54

It's important, because children are our future.

0:06:540:06:58

And what we invest in them is exactly what we will get back.

0:06:580:07:02

She wanted to build better relationships with the police

0:07:030:07:06

and the community and she wanted to help young people,

0:07:060:07:09

and that's what drew us together to try and do that.

0:07:090:07:11

Is it making a difference?

0:07:110:07:12

I think it is, because once they're in here, they're working with

0:07:120:07:15

positive role models, including the police officers that give up

0:07:150:07:18

their own time to come down here and help.

0:07:180:07:20

And then this leads to other things.

0:07:200:07:22

What you're seeing here is what Dwayne had a passion about,

0:07:220:07:26

to bring the community together in the midst of youth violence

0:07:260:07:30

that has been happening in Lambeth for many years.

0:07:300:07:32

Most of the young men and women on the estate refer to her as Mum,

0:07:320:07:36

because she's seen as a community leader, so she's a mum to everyone.

0:07:360:07:39

You've trained as well, haven't you?

0:07:390:07:41

Yes, in fact my whole life has taken a different direction!

0:07:410:07:46

I'm a qualified boxing tutor now, David.

0:07:460:07:49

-So you're a punching preacher?

-Yes, a punching preacher!

0:07:490:07:52

THEY LAUGH

0:07:520:07:54

# Shine your light. #

0:09:240:09:25

# Saviour... #

0:09:510:09:54

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:10:340:10:36

Now it's time for the second in our series for Lent

0:10:430:10:46

from our very special guest the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu.

0:10:460:10:50

He's interviewed three remarkable women

0:10:500:10:52

whose faith he's found particularly inspiring.

0:10:520:10:55

The Almighty has his own plan for us

0:10:570:10:59

and we all know he moves in mysterious ways

0:10:590:11:04

but, for one young woman,

0:11:040:11:05

that meant giving up her savings to buy a big, purple bus.

0:11:050:11:09

25-year-old Emily Finch has an indomitable spirit

0:11:110:11:15

and she's following what she believes is a calling from God.

0:11:150:11:19

Student Emily created a charity,

0:11:200:11:23

enabling churches to build relationships with young people.

0:11:230:11:26

Instead of a church hall, this is a youth club on wheels.

0:11:270:11:31

I'm...wondering in my brain, you know, what made you think

0:11:340:11:38

particularly that God was calling you and calling you to sink

0:11:380:11:41

-all your money into a second-hand bus?!

-Yeah, it's so true!

0:11:410:11:45

I've had a lot of questions about that.

0:11:450:11:47

I think a bus because it's mobile

0:11:470:11:50

and we're helping local churches do youth work.

0:11:500:11:53

-So, you spent all your savings?

-Yeah.

0:11:530:11:57

It was the money that my lovely parents put aside,

0:11:570:12:00

probably to go towards a deposit on a house, or something like that.

0:12:000:12:03

Is it paying any dividends?

0:12:030:12:05

It definitely is paying dividends.

0:12:050:12:07

We've seen amazing things happen in young people's lives

0:12:070:12:11

and they say that the bus is like their second home.

0:12:110:12:13

Most of the young people who come on our bus aren't Christian,

0:12:130:12:17

but the fact that we're Christians doesn't seem to bother them at all.

0:12:170:12:21

They know that we're there for them if they want to talk about God,

0:12:210:12:24

but also we don't have to talk about God.

0:12:240:12:26

We love them wherever they're at in life.

0:12:260:12:29

Have you ever had experience of young people coming there

0:12:290:12:32

and as soon as you start talking about praying, talking about God,

0:12:320:12:35

they say, "Oh, my goodness!"?

0:12:350:12:37

Oh, all the time! Yeah!

0:12:370:12:38

But often they... they end up loving it.

0:12:380:12:41

I think they love that we talk about the real things in life.

0:12:410:12:44

We had a boy on recently and we were doing, like, a prayer activity,

0:12:440:12:49

and it was listing the things that you are good at, your good

0:12:490:12:52

qualities that God has given you, and he said, "I've got nothing."

0:12:520:12:56

And so many of our young people don't believe they've got any worth

0:12:560:13:00

and it's such a privilege to walk alongside them

0:13:000:13:03

and show them that, in God's eyes, they are so loved

0:13:030:13:06

and they are precious to him.

0:13:060:13:08

The theme for today is thinking about hopes...

0:13:080:13:11

our hopes and dreams for the future.

0:13:110:13:13

And so what I want to say is dream big,

0:13:130:13:16

and I think all of these things,

0:13:160:13:18

God has so much greater plans than we can imagine.

0:13:180:13:20

The bus is the most recent thing that I've trusted God in.

0:13:210:13:25

It wasn't going from no faith to suddenly being like,

0:13:250:13:28

"I'm going to buy a bus,"

0:13:280:13:29

there was lots of other things that I trusted in him.

0:13:290:13:31

Yeah, as they say, you know, little drops of water,

0:13:310:13:34

if a lot of them keep coming, keep coming,

0:13:340:13:37

-eventually they will turn a water wheel, won't they?

-Yeah.

0:13:370:13:40

I've seen people's lives change and that's been the most

0:13:410:13:44

incredible thing, to witness that, to just see God at work,

0:13:440:13:47

and that is the best job that I could ever have,

0:13:470:13:49

so, yeah, it's changed my life.

0:13:490:13:51

So, how do you see your future?

0:13:510:13:53

-A career in public transport maybe?

-Ooh, um... I'm not sure!

0:13:530:13:57

At the moment, the charity is growing massively,

0:13:570:13:59

which is really exciting

0:13:590:14:01

and I imagine I'm going to be doing the bus for quite a bit longer.

0:14:010:14:05

0:17:030:17:07

Comic Relief was launched on Christmas Day, 1985

0:17:150:17:18

and since then has raised billions,

0:17:180:17:21

supporting projects across the UK and the world.

0:17:210:17:24

Josie d'Arby has been to one scheme being cooked up in Somerset.

0:17:240:17:28

It's a cookery course run by Methodist teacher Jacquelene Seel,

0:17:290:17:33

where it's only men allowed.

0:17:330:17:35

I think, uh, 170...

0:17:350:17:38

Morning, everybody.

0:17:380:17:40

I thought it'd be really good if we did something for Red Noses

0:17:400:17:42

and I've got some little red noses, look.

0:17:420:17:44

The "Men Get Cooking!" classes have been running for 16 years

0:17:440:17:47

and have grown after funding from Comic Relief.

0:17:470:17:50

So, Jackie, where did the idea for "Men Get Cooking!" come from?

0:17:500:17:54

My Methodist background means that really I want to use all my skills

0:17:540:17:57

for the good of everybody else, so...

0:17:570:18:00

So why men only?

0:18:000:18:02

Some wanted to just dabble, they were maybe at a low ebb.

0:18:020:18:07

For example, if someone was bereaved and they were maybe having to

0:18:070:18:11

get by on ready meals, and also, sometimes we had people

0:18:110:18:15

who suddenly found themselves in a situation where they needed to cook.

0:18:150:18:20

Yeah, cos when you try and slice that, it's going to...

0:18:200:18:23

My wife, unfortunately, has a few health problems at the moment.

0:18:230:18:28

I've certainly taken on more of the cooking.

0:18:280:18:30

And beyond the cooking, Jackie, what-what are people telling you

0:18:310:18:34

that they're getting out of it on a very personal level?

0:18:340:18:38

It's so healing, really, just that humour...

0:18:380:18:42

-This is turning into the most perfect quiche!

-That's looking good, Sid. It is!

0:18:420:18:45

We've all got stories and episodes in our life

0:18:450:18:49

-where we just need somebody to help us along the way, don't we?

-Yeah.

0:18:490:18:52

'As it's a Comic Relief project, look who's turned up.

0:18:540:18:57

'It's comedian Milton Jones.'

0:18:570:19:00

-It reminds me of being in a sandpit.

-Yeah!

0:19:000:19:03

-Do you cook?

-Uh...

0:19:030:19:05

-You know Gordon Ramsay's a really good cook who swears a lot?

-Yes.

0:19:050:19:09

-I'm like him, only I'm not a really good cook.

-Now, why is that?

0:19:090:19:12

-Is it because you're a man?

-No, it's because I'm incompetent.

0:19:120:19:16

So what do you think about the fact

0:19:160:19:17

that it's more than about just cooking?

0:19:170:19:19

I think, especially for men, who find it difficult just to chat,

0:19:190:19:23

and it's really useful to have something that they can do

0:19:230:19:26

and talk off the back of it cos men aren't particularly good

0:19:260:19:30

at opening up and just being themselves.

0:19:300:19:32

The big thing for me was... was packing in work.

0:19:320:19:35

After 50 years of getting up and going to work all day,

0:19:350:19:38

I suddenly stop,

0:19:380:19:40

and the psychological adjustment I found very hard.

0:19:400:19:44

-Cos I never did much cooking.

-Mm-hm.

0:19:440:19:45

My wife usually did it and my mother wasn't keen

0:19:450:19:47

on being interfered with in the kitchen!

0:19:470:19:49

She was old school, you know, and you weren't allowed in.

0:19:490:19:52

And do you think that it's important that Comic Relief,

0:19:520:19:55

who fund so many things across the world,

0:19:550:19:58

also recognise the need within individual communities?

0:19:580:20:01

People are poor in all sorts of ways and often it's emotionally,

0:20:010:20:05

and that kind of poverty is sometimes harder to see

0:20:050:20:08

than, you know, not having money or food.

0:20:080:20:10

-That's really good, forming good clumps now.

-Yeah, I'm a natural.

0:20:100:20:14

For me, it's a privilege...

0:20:140:20:16

as a Christian to be walking along their journey.

0:20:160:20:19

If we can help each other along, faith and life,

0:20:190:20:23

we're just all in the hands of God, really, aren't we?

0:20:230:20:26

'With the quiches ready,

0:20:260:20:28

'it's now time for the all-important taste test.'

0:20:280:20:32

I'm getting wood, I'm getting onions...

0:20:320:20:33

which is weird cos I didn't put any in.

0:20:330:20:36

Wow, that was good fun. What do you make of that then, Milton?

0:20:360:20:39

Uh, it was great, wasn't it?

0:20:390:20:40

Seeing those old guys coming out of themselves.

0:20:400:20:42

And what about for you personally, first time having a crack in the kitchen?

0:20:420:20:45

It could be the beginning of something very big indeed.

0:20:450:20:48

-Oh, I hope to taste the fruits of your labour, Milton.

-Yeah.

0:20:480:20:52

Well, if you would like to donate to "Men Get Cooking!"

0:20:520:20:54

or any of the other fabulous causes supported by Comic Relief,

0:20:540:20:57

you can do so on your mobile phone...

0:20:570:21:00

Like many mums on Mother's Day,

0:22:580:22:59

Jackie Meredith loves having her family around.

0:22:590:23:02

As well as having three children and eight grandchildren,

0:23:020:23:05

she and her husband Bob have also fostered more than 20 children.

0:23:050:23:10

Seven years ago, Jackie and Bob received an unusual request.

0:23:110:23:14

They were asked to become foster carers with a difference

0:23:140:23:18

and to take on three boys who'd just arrived from Afghanistan.

0:23:180:23:21

'Back in 2009,

0:23:220:23:24

'the two brothers and their cousin were aged between 11 and 12,

0:23:240:23:27

'and they've really settled into life here with Jackie and Bob.'

0:23:270:23:31

-This is Ahmad.

-Nice to meet you.

-Ahmad, lovely to meet you.

0:23:310:23:34

Jackie, tell us, how did the boys come to be here?

0:23:340:23:37

Bob called me from home,

0:23:370:23:38

he said he'd had a telephone call from the fostering people saying,

0:23:380:23:42

would we look after some young asylum-seeking boys?

0:23:420:23:46

And, to be honest,

0:23:460:23:47

I feel quite guilty now because I didn't sort of know what to say

0:23:470:23:50

at the time to him, I was like, "I'm not sure about this."

0:23:500:23:54

And then, when we met the boys, they were so terrified,

0:23:540:23:58

just small, young boys,

0:23:580:24:00

didn't know where they were, didn't know who to trust,

0:24:000:24:03

and they'd had a horrendous journey for six months

0:24:030:24:06

getting from Afghanistan...

0:24:060:24:08

walking in the night to not being fed.

0:24:080:24:12

However they survived, I'll never know.

0:24:120:24:14

The boys' parents had sent them away to escape the dangers

0:24:140:24:18

of their war-torn country.

0:24:180:24:20

They arrived speaking little or no English

0:24:200:24:23

and with no understanding of our way of life.

0:24:230:24:25

The culture, obviously, was very different.

0:24:250:24:27

If you walked into the room they would stand up and we just...

0:24:270:24:31

You know, "You're at home, you don't have to, just sit down,

0:24:310:24:33

"relax, this is your home."

0:24:330:24:35

And also, I can remember distinctly with Ahmad, with his trousers,

0:24:350:24:39

his school trousers...

0:24:390:24:40

I ironed them and I gave them to him with the rest of the ironing

0:24:400:24:44

and he gave them back and was like, "Not good enough."

0:24:440:24:47

And I realised, yeah, the creases, I hadn't done it perfect enough,

0:24:470:24:51

so I did them again and he said, "No, not good enough."

0:24:510:24:54

And I thought, "This is going to go on here,

0:24:540:24:57

"it's never going to be good enough!"

0:24:570:24:58

So I got the ironing board out and said,

0:24:580:25:01

"You iron them how you want to do it."

0:25:010:25:03

And Ahmad said that back in their country,

0:25:030:25:06

the mum and the sisters would be inside and they would iron

0:25:060:25:09

those trousers 20 or 30 times because that's...

0:25:090:25:13

that was just the way it was.

0:25:130:25:15

I accepted that and understood it over a period of time -

0:25:150:25:18

we've just got to go slowly and understand each other,

0:25:180:25:22

and obviously we moved on and we smile about it now.

0:25:220:25:26

-And there were, of course, faith differences.

-Yes, exactly.

0:25:260:25:29

Um, obviously, we follow our faith, our Christianity faith,

0:25:290:25:33

and that's important to us in our life and our children

0:25:330:25:36

and our grandchildren, so we really respected how important it was

0:25:360:25:40

for the boys to continue with their faith, with being Muslims.

0:25:400:25:43

Having that faith there, you know, we're all human,

0:25:430:25:47

we can all help each other, we all have our own beliefs,

0:25:470:25:49

but at the end of the day,

0:25:490:25:51

this is the world and this is all that we live in,

0:25:510:25:54

and let's all make it one nice, happy place as best as we can.

0:25:540:25:57

-CHILD:

-Daddy, look, here's some...

0:25:580:26:01

There's a lot of love in this home, isn't there?

0:26:010:26:03

They've done every single thing that a real parent would do

0:26:030:26:06

for their own child.

0:26:060:26:07

They've supported us through school, supported us through, uh...

0:26:070:26:10

Just learning the language,

0:26:100:26:11

and they've always motivated us to go on and achieve and succeed.

0:26:110:26:15

I'm so grateful for them.

0:26:150:26:18

They've been like my mum and dad through all my time being here.

0:26:180:26:22

Jackie has been an amazing mum.

0:26:220:26:25

For me, being a mum, it's all really about making them happy,

0:26:260:26:29

secure and loved, and I think then the child will just flourish

0:26:290:26:34

if you can provide all that and the empathy with it.

0:26:340:26:37

This weekend has been a time for reflection and prayer

0:28:330:28:36

after the terror attack on Westminster on Wednesday.

0:28:360:28:40

Aled Jones went to meet the Reverend Rose Hudson-Wilkin,

0:28:400:28:43

who has close ties with Westminster through her role as chaplain

0:28:430:28:47

to the Speaker of the House of Commons.

0:28:470:28:50

They met at Lambeth Palace,

0:28:500:28:51

just across the Thames from the Houses of Parliament.

0:28:510:28:54

I know you were at the Houses of Parliament

0:28:540:28:57

when the attacker struck.

0:28:570:29:00

What was the atmosphere like there?

0:29:000:29:02

The atmosphere... I think at first it was bewilderment and shock.

0:29:020:29:07

We'd heard by then that someone had been hurt and I think we were

0:29:070:29:11

just hoping and praying that he or she would not have succumbed

0:29:110:29:18

to their injuries but sadly we learnt otherwise.

0:29:180:29:21

A police officer lost his life

0:29:210:29:24

trying to save other people's lives.

0:29:240:29:29

How do you reflect on his actions?

0:29:290:29:32

PC Keith will have given his life, he's given his life for us,

0:29:320:29:39

for me, and I hope for all of us that we will not take that

0:29:390:29:45

for granted, but that we will do something positive with our lives,

0:29:450:29:51

that we will shine the light of goodness, the light of compassion,

0:29:510:29:58

the light of mercy, as we continue with our own lives.

0:29:580:30:02

A lot of people also...

0:30:020:30:03

I've heard conversations on the news carried out,

0:30:030:30:06

saying that without religion, maybe we'd be better off.

0:30:060:30:09

You know, atrocities carried out in the name of so-called God.

0:30:090:30:13

Um, I think those people of faith...

0:30:130:30:17

the Christian faith, the Muslim faith,

0:30:170:30:20

or any other faith for that matter,

0:30:200:30:22

those people of real faith would not do something like...

0:30:220:30:25

This is perverted, this is evil personified.

0:30:250:30:29

Do you have a message for people watching our programme

0:30:290:30:33

who have maybe been affected by this,

0:30:330:30:34

or are watching at home frightened about the world that we live in now?

0:30:340:30:39

Yes, I think my message to those who are watching this programme today

0:30:390:30:44

is not to be fearful.

0:30:440:30:48

It's those words of our Lord Jesus,

0:30:480:30:50

"Let not your hearts be troubled at this time.

0:30:500:30:54

"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you..."

0:30:540:30:59

And also, to say, do not allow someone who lived in a way

0:30:590:31:06

contrary to love to determine how WE respond.

0:31:060:31:11

# Make me a channel of your peace

0:31:190:31:26

0:31:260:31:29

# Oh, Master grant that I may never seek

0:32:280:32:36

# So much to be consoled as to console

0:32:360:32:44

0:32:440:32:52

0:33:190:33:23

-# A channel of your peace

-Oh!

0:33:230:33:26

# It is in pardoning

0:33:260:33:29

-# That we are pardoned

-Oh!

0:33:290:33:34

# In giving to all men

0:33:340:33:38

# That we receive

0:33:380:33:44

# And in dying that we're born to eternal life. #
