Weekly Thursday Noon Prayers – 10th June 2020

Cornwall Faith Forum is very saddened about the building up of intolerance around us and are sending our thoughts and love to everyone who has seen injustice related to faith, race, colour and sexual orientation.

We would like to return to the Act of Commitment made by all Faith Communities in the UK in the Houses of Parliament on 3rd of January 2000 organised by the Inter-Faith Network.



A shared act of reflection and commitment by the faith communities of the UK

In a world scarred by the evils of war,

racism, injustice and poverty,

we offer this joint Act of Commitment as we

look to our shared future.


We commit ourselves,
as people
to work together
for the common good,
uniting to build a better society,
grounded in values and ideals we share:

personal integrity,
a sense of right and wrong,
learning, wisdom and love of truth,
care and compassion,
justice and peace,
respect for one another,
for the earth and its creatures.

We commit ourselves,
in a spirit of friendship and co-operation,
to work together
alongside all who share our values and ideals,
to help bring about a better world
now and for generations to come.


We would also like to include the prayer below in our Thursday Noon Prayers:

To the home of peace

to the field of love the land where forgiveness and right relationship meet

we look, O God,

with longing for earth’s children

with hearts breaking for the nations and people we love.

Open us to visions we have never known

strengthen us for self-givings we have never made

delight us with a oneness could never have imagined

that we may truly be born of You

maker of peace.
