Readings from Holocaust Memorial Event – Sunday 2nd February

The Cornwall Faith Forum marked Holocaust Memorial Day at the Dor Kemmyn Peace Field.  Each faith contributed a reading.

The Baha’i reading:

“Be thou a summoner to love, and be thou kind to all the human race. Love thou the  children of men and share in their sorrows. Be thou of those who foster peace ;……… for ye are all but the drops from but one ocean, the foliage of one tree, the pearls from a single shell, the flowers and sweet herbs  from the same one garden.

Call none a stranger. Be ye as if all men were your close kin and honoured friends. Walk ye in such wise that this fleeting world will change into  splendour….”  Abdul Baha

 

The Christian reading:

“May we be bearers of comfort

May we be strong in our soul to cry at the wrongs of nations, to weep with the bleeding earth, to mourn with those who mourn in the loss of life and lands, in the loss of dreams and hope.

May we be strong in our soul this day.”
