Update on Thursday Noon Day Prayers held during Pandemic

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 dorkemmyn.rita@btinternet.com
