Weekly Thursday Noon Prayers – 6th August 2020

Cornwall Faith Forum is sending love to everyone in Cornwall.

There will be a Zoom meeting for Thursday Noon Prayers on Thursday 6th August at 12:00 noon.  Please contact Rita on dorkemmyn.rita@btinternet.com  if you would like to join in.

 

Eid ul Adha was celebrated on Friday 31st July  and finished on Monday 3rd August.  Qudsia very kindly sent us a prayer from the Holy Quran:

 

“My Lord, grant me that I may be grateful for Thy Favour which Thou hast bestowed on me and my parents, and I may do such righteous deeds as may please Thee.

Establish righteousness among my progeny for me. I do turn to Thee and truly I am one of those who are obedient to Thee”. Ch.46 v.16.

 


 

Also on Thursday 6th August: Hiroshima and Nagasaki commemoration: Peace Wave

The anniversary of the dropping of the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki is commemorated across the world. And this year, an international joint grassroots action will allow people – wherever they are – to join together in one action.

Starting from the moment the first bomb was dropped, 8:15am on August 6th, waves of many creative forms of actions will encircle the globe until 11:02 am on August 9th, when the second bomb was dropped over Nagasaki.

How can you join in?
In Japan, actions will start with silent prayer at 8:15am on August 6th and also end with silent prayer at 11:02am on August 9th. We are asked to mark the moments that the bombs fell (but in UK time), with a silent period of reflection.
