In the aftermath of the Paris attacks, the Liberal Democrat Christian Forum (LDCF) joined with folk from other political parties and faiths to organise an interfaith, cross-Party vigil to stand and pray for those affected.
The awful attacks carried out by ISIS in Paris, Beirut and Baghdad have left many grieving. They happened in a context of violence and terror in the Middle East where communities have been divided, millions of people have fled their homes and thousands of lives have been taken. In response to this, LDCF co-hosted an interfaith, cross-Party vigil with the Conservative Christian Fellowship, Christians on the Left and FaithAction.
Outside Westminster Abbey, politicians of different parties and people of different faith stood together in solidarity and prayer for all those affected by the horrific atrocities. Revd Rose Hudson-Wilkin, the Speaker's Chaplain, and Jasvir Singh from City Sikhs Network shared reflections before a moments silence.
Among those there were Liberal Democrats Lord Paul Tyler, Lord Roger Roberts and Baroness Shirley Williams.
