News From Rev. Gaynor Jones-Higgs.

Shortly after our multi-faith Holocaust Memorial service, I visited Coventry Cathedral. The ruins of the old cathedral, which was bombed in 1940, merge into the modern new building which was consecrated in 1962. After Coventry was bombed, Cathedral Provost Dick Howard had the phrase “Father Forgive” inscribed on the wall of the ruined cathedral where it can still be seen today. The simple prayer Father Forgive, rather than Father forgive them, led to Coventry Cathedral becoming a renowned centre for ministry of reconciliation.

The Litany of Reconciliation is said at 12 noon in the cathedral and on Fridays many other associated centres of reconciliation around the world also join in the prayer.

Then I wondered, wouldn’t it be amazing if Llanpumsaint could become a centre of reconciliation, a place where we actively celebrate what we have in common and strive to disagree well? A bit of further research informed me there is currently only one Coventry affiliated centre of reconciliation in Wales, the village of Llanbeder in Gwynedd. With recent tragic events in New Zealand perhaps the need to do this has been drawn more clearly into focus.

As a start I’d like to begin saying the litany of reconciliation every Friday at 12 noon at the church. To make this happen, I need 51 like minded individuals who are willing to take responsibility for leading the litany on one Friday in the year. If this is something you would be interested in, please contact me.
