During Monday morning’s Good Morning Britain, host Kate Garraway spoke with Bishop Rose Hudson-Wilkin about the pandemic and questioned why a God could even allow it to happen in the first place. Kate’s had personal battles of her own during the pandemic as husband Derek Draper has been in hospital since March 2020 after contracting COVID-19. He no longer has the virus but is battling several health issues including damage to his liver and pancreas and was left with clots in his lungs due to the virus.

“How could a God allow this to happen to the world, have you had that?” Kate asked the Bishop when discussing the questions she may have faced over the past year.

Bishop Hudson-Wilkins replied: “That’s a tough one and we hear it all the time when there’s a natural disaster or when someone has done something terrible.

“The feedback has always been ‘If God is really there, why did he allow…?’

“And, when we say that we actually forget that we have the freedom.”

She continued: “A guest earlier on was speaking about not parting with the sense of freedom to decide and determine for one’s self.

“We have to work with the freedom we have in a way that doesn’t infringe or harm, we see that in our creative order.”
