Everyone’s skint and the world’s gone to pot. But how to we fix it?

Throughout the whole of February, Liverpool Cathedral have announce they’re offering a ‘Pray For The Economy’ area, where people can reflect and pray on how the economy’s gone tits up.

It’s in the form of a labyrinth – but don’t panic! It’s just an open path on the ground with a selection of prayer stations, rather than some impossible science fiction maze you’re stuck in forever. Though, if the Cathedral have got the budget for it, we’d love to see one of those in future.

The announcement says the labyrinth “begins with a journey inwards, to reflect and pray for yourself and your own circumstances. There is then a pause at the centre before starting the journey outwards with different ways to pray for our region, our nation and the world.”

Canon Richard White from the Cathedral said of the new installation: “Jesus taught about money a great deal. We’ve included reminders of some of his words, with space to reflect on all we have to be grateful for, and invitations to pray for our own need as well as those of others.”

The labyrinth is available in the Derby Transept of the Cathedral for the whole of February.

    @7streets With assets of £5.3 billion in property and shares, pity the CofE couldn’t do a bit more than encourage us to pray

    @Mrs_Ordinary The Church of England is not a business, it is an organisation whose primary purpose is to encourage people to pray

    @oritsema_e Having read the latest report from commissioners, I do not agree that is the case but thank you for bothering to reply.

    @oritsema_e Hi again. C 0f E’s own list of their investments. It seems to cost an awful lot of money to encourage pray. http://t.co/dEPzqRQW

  • Mrs_Ordinary

    @7streets You should see the full Annual Report on internet. They sold site at Cheshire Oaks to M&S for millions. Shocking, to me at least.

    @Mrs_Ordinary

    Yes it does. Churches all over the country and worldwide, maintainng massive buildings, paying clergy, cleaners, PR…

    @oritsema_e With less than 1mill regular churchgoers in UK I think it is time for a re-think of purpose and a change of strategy.

    @oritsema_e Too many bishops and palaces, and you can pray anywhere, inside or out. Far too big a topic for twitter though. Good luck.
