Rt Rev Rob Wickham attended an hour of remembrance at St Mary’s Primrose Hill Church on Friday evening for victims of violent crime in Camden.
Most recently, there was a double stabbing on Camden High Street on 12 September. One led to a fatality.
Rev Wickham lit a candle of remembrance and offered support as he reflected on recent tragedies.
“This is a matter for all of London, young and old, rich and poor. The victims, their families and friends do not stand alone at this dark time, but alongside those that believe that faith speaks of hope, the sanctity of human life, and compassionate care and support for those who are hurting,” he said.
“Faith also speaks of justice and speaking truth to power, so I urge truth telling and pray for the work of the police so that those who take life may be brought to Justice.
“We pray too that lives might be turned around for anyone who now carries or uses a knife, that community relationships may be strengthened, and the need for carrying knives eliminated.”
Moving hour of remembrance at St Mary’s, Primrose Hill for all the young victims of knife & gun crime in Camden. @bpedmonton quoted the proverb ‘It takes a village to raise a child.’ We must stand together in solidarity against this horror and work every day to end the bloodshed. pic.twitter.com/3Co96kzkEJ

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
