Response from the Cornwall Faith Forum in relation to the Manchester terror attack

Statement on behalf of the Cornwall Faith Forum from the
Representatives of the Faith Communities of Cornwall  

Our thoughts and prayers are with those who lost their lives or were injured in the terrorist murders at the Manchester Arena,  their families, and those responding with assistance.

We deplore and condemn this wanton, brutal and cowardly taking of the lives of young and old.

We stand together to oppose terrorism and the ideologies that promote it.

We offer this prayer and invite others to share it:

God of our fears and hopes
With you we know that Goodness is stronger than evil
That Love is stronger than hate
That Light is stronger than darkness
Be with those whose lives have been turned upside down by the bombing in Manchester
May all beings be free from suffering and the causes of suffering
May the Peace of God surround and protect us all.
