A prayer for peace

IMG_0336 (2)

Every Sunday evening, the interdenominational prayer fraternity organizes a special – but simple – prayer for peace. It takes place in the middle of the city, just in front of the train station. People stand in a circle and all the passers-by are invited to join this silent prayer. In our opinion, it is a strong symbol that shows that peace can be created in a really simple way.

In the last prayer, we remembered Kabul and Damas in particular. Among the participants, there were many teenagers of Middle Eastern origin. We were really touched to share this moment with them.

Tous les dimanche soirs, la fraternité orante interconfessionnelle organise une prière pour la paix. Cette belle – et très simple – prière a lieu devant la gare au milieu de la ville. On se rassemble dans un cercle et tout le monde qui passe par l’endroit est invité à se joindre. Cette ouverture représente pour nous un symbole fort.

Dans la dernière prière, nous avons prié en particulier pour Kaboul et Damas. Plusieurs jeunes originaires du Proche-Orient ont notamment participé, cela nous a beaucoup touché de passer ce moment ensemble.
