The Moderator Rt. Rev. Colin Sinclair has joined the Archbishop of Canterbury and other church leaders in calling the nation to pray this Sunday. Colin said:
“We have become aware in a new way of our frailty and need to renew our dependence on God. I welcome this call to prayer across the UK and encourage you to join in it this Sunday wherever you are.”
We are encouraged to light a candle at 7pm on Sunday “as a visible symbol of the light of life, Jesus Christ, our source and hope in prayer”.
Church leaders are seeking to quell fears and remind us of God’s presence and love. They write:
“At such a time as this, when so many are fearful and there is great uncertainty, we are reminded of our dependence on our loving Heavenly Father and the future that he holds.”
