Update on Thursday Noon Day Prayers
Just as the Lockdown was beginning , our Project worker Rita came up with the idea of Thursday noon day prayers where one or two of us from all of the Faiths and Beliefs represented under the umbrella of the Cornwall Faith Forum (CFF)could meet in the Penmount Field . Each week a different Faith Group would present a Prayer or Reading from their Holy Writings and Traditions to express solidarity and relief from distress with our world wide family who are suffering – regardless of Faith, Ethnicity or Gender, in the current C-19 pandemic .
There were not to be many meetings in the Field due to Lockdown but perhaps , it has triggered a wider solidarity as friends say prayers wherever they are. One CFF member has begun saying prayers via Wattsapp video link on Thursday at noon with friends as far afield as Brittany. We have also received warm wishes towards this regular event from a CFF friend in New Zealand .
In spite of the Lockdown , we can say our Cornwall Faith Forum activities are now reaching the international stage !
If you would like to have a prayer read please let Rita know firstname.lastname@example.org
