The Rt Rev. Richard Chartres has sent a message of support, solidarity, and prayer to the Bishop of Berlin following yesterday’s truck attack on a Christmas Market in that city.
Dear Brother in Christ
I was praying for you and the people of Berlin earlier this morning. As the Bishop of a City which has also experience terrorism, my heart goes out to the bereaved and injured. This attack on hospitable Germany is felt deeply here.
The dead and injured will be remembered in your Cathedral of St Paul’s in these last days of Advent.
With thanks for our partnership in the Gospel,
The Rt Revd & Rt Hon Richard Chartres KCVO DD FSA
The Bishop’s message was sent to Bishop Markus Dröge, of the Evangelical Church Berlin-Brandenburg-Silesian Upper Lusatia. Dröge is an honorary canon of St Paul’s.
