Bishop of London sends prayers to Berlin

Bishop of London sends prayers to Berlin

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.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
