>> The small town of Birstall trying to come to terms with the violent death of their local member of Parliament, Jo Cox. The normal Sunday service at Saint Peter's Church, a moment for reflection.>> It's been an incredible week, incredibly, it should never have happened, but here we are.
00:00:19
>> The life and work of the popular member of the community celebrated.>> Her humanity was powerful and compelling, and we would do well to recognize her as an amazing example, a 21st century good samaritan.>> In the MPs maiden speech she reminded Parliament how much unites rather than divides us a sentiment the Reverend Knight echoed.
00:00:46
>> God's love is bigger than our petty differences. Tributes also paid to Bernard Kenny, the 77 year old man who was injured trying to help the MP as she was attacked. More than half a million pounds was donated to a fund in Joe Cox's name in one day.

The money will be shared between causes the MP supported, charities fighting loneliness and extremism and helping Syrian refugees.
