Bishop addresses vigil after Manchester bomb
30 May 2017 IN: Bishop
Following the terrorist attack in Manchester on 22 May, the Bishop of Mancheester, David Walker, addressed a vigil on Tuesday 23 May at Albert Square, Manchester.
He said, "You cannot defeat us because love in the end is always stronger than hate. We're in shock, we're grieving and we're angry, but we can direct those feelings in a positive direction. Our compassion will help us draw near to people who need support, not just this day but for as long as they need it. Our anger can be a force for good if we direct it, not towards hatred, but towards a determination that the terrorists cannot win, and to work together for the future of this city. Please pray for us."
