March 21, 2016

The Bishop of Bermuda Nicholas Dill said that “in the light of the many complex discussions that have been had in Bermuda over the last 3 months, and in particular the tensions of the last week,” the Cathedral will be holding a “quiet time of prayer and reflection” on Wednesday.

Bishop Dill said, “In the light of the many complex discussions that have been had in Bermuda over the last 3 months, and in particular the tensions of the last week, we would like to inform the public that the Cathedral on Church Street will be holding a quiet time of prayer and reflection on Wednesday 23rd March from midday to 12:45.

“The Cathedral is open every day for quiet prayer – but on this occasion there will be some short readings and time for our own responses to God.

“In order for us to move forward together as a community we will be pausing to thank God that the current crisis has been abated; to seek His forgiveness for the things we have thought, said and done; to consider the need for reconciliation in our community based on truth and love; and to pledge ourselves to the cause of unity and peace going forward.

“All of this comes in the midst of Holy Week in the run up to Easter -where on Thursday we wash one another’s feet in service and love; on Friday we remember the cross and lay down the past at Jesus’ feet and on Sunday we rejoice in His resurrection and the possibility of a new day!

“This occasion is not a time for speeches, banners, marches or debates – but a coming together as brothers and sisters from all backgrounds, from leaders to the man and woman on the street, irrespective of race, nationality, political parties or persuasion to sit together, to pray, to reflect and to go back to our families and communities resolved to love God and our neighbour once again.

“And as we go to those with whom we may disagree, let us resolve not so much to speak about one another, or to speak at one another, but to speak to one another and to listen carefully as we speak in order to understand and respect each other with whom we will have to live in this small, fragile yet beautiful place.”
