Faith Community Leaders On US Election

October 30, 2020 | 1 Comment

The leaders of Faith Communities in Bermuda urge residents to offer “thoughts, prayers, or meditation for the people of the United States, as they engage in their General Election.”

In a joint statement, the leaders of Faith Communities in Bermuda said, “We, the undersigned leaders of Faith Communities in Bermuda, invite and encourage residents across our Island, to pause over the next few days, offering thoughts, prayers, or meditation for the people of the United States, as they engage in their General Election. We do so in light of the uncommon drama that has been generated across that country during this period, with concerning levels of polarization.

“Our only hopes for these, our neighbours, is that this democratic exercise will conclude with a peaceful outcome, the best of their legacy.”

    Any proof that prayers do anything other than allowing the person praying to feel like they are doing something to help, when in fact they are doing nothing?
