‘Blessed are the peacemakers’, Jesus tells us. ‘Love your enemies’. But what might this actually look like in your life and mine? This event will provided much food for thought.
As part of the Archbishop of Canterbury’s visit to the Diocese, Bishop Graham chaired an evening in Norwich Cathedral entitled ‘Reflections on Reconciliation’, on Wednesday 7 November.
This was an opportunity to listen to opening contributions from a richly diverse panel including Pastor Rolf Stahl from Koblenz, Norwich’s German twin-town; Dr Marian Prinsley, President of the Norwich Hebrew Congregation; those who spoke about the need for reconciliation in a world peopled by homeless refugees and also in a divided Church.
In response to these initial reflections, the Archbishop made his own presentation before leading everyone into a time of gathered silence and prayer.
There was then more time for people to make their pilgrimage around Stations of Reconciliation before Compline by candleight brought the evening to a close.
