Bishops do the Lambeth walk to end poverty -Times Online

LINK INCLUDES VIDEO 

Up to 670 Anglican bishops and other faith leaders were marching from Whitehall to Lambeth Palace today to call for an end to world poverty.

Gordon Brown described the march of hundreds of the world’s religious leaders today as “the greatest public demonstration of faith” Britain had ever seen.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, led the bishops, who are attending the Lambeth Conference, as they moved slowly and silently past the Houses of Parliament.

They carried a banner telling governments to Keep the Promise to Halve Poverty by 2015 which was part of the Millennium Development Goals set in 2000.
