Pray for London on post-it-notes

A traditional religious response in times of trouble is to pray. Not in expectation of divine intervention, instead it’s a way of expressing pain, recognising our shared humanity and dreaming of a hopeful future lived within the Earth, the only home we have.

At one of the workshops during the  ‘Let’s Pray – Kia inoi Tatou’ symposium hosted by the Catholic Diocese of Palmerston North, participants were asked to pray the news in five minutes on one post-it-note after reflecting on a photo depicting the riots in London, while listening to Mahler’s symphony number 5.
