Dio­cese of Coven­try

The Church of England - - NEWS -

The Bishop of Coven­try, the Rt Rev Christo­pher Cocksworth, spoke at the first of three spe­cial events to mark the 75th an­niver­sary of the bomb­ing of the city on Satur­day.

“On the day af­ter the ter­ri­ble vi­o­lence ex­pe­ri­enced by the peo­ple Paris, the story of Coven­try is more im­por­tant than ever. Our his­tory tells us of the ter­ror of vi­o­lence. It also tells us that vi­o­lence need not have the last word. It tells us that hope heals, that peace is pos­si­ble and that we must do ev­ery­thing in our power – call­ing on the power of God – to end the cy­cle of vi­o­lence and the ha­tred that fu­els it.”
