Archbishop promotes prayer on walkabout
Living Cornwall Editor
A carnival of Christians made their way through the cobbled streets of Truro city centre yesterday as the new Archbishop of Canterbury called on people to "give the power of prayer a try".
Inviting "those of all faiths and those of none" to join him in the cathedral for a day of worship and contemplation, the Most Reverend Justin Welby handed out prayer cards and candles to shoppers.
Billed as a day of informal reflection, the Archbishop was demonstrating what many in the Church of England see as a more accessible style to that of his predecessor, Rowan Williams.

The former Bishop of Durham, who will be enthroned on Thursday, said it was "a privilege" to be in Cornwall, particularly as he had "not seen sunshine for weeks".
Greeted on Lemon Quay by the Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall, local dignitaries, church leaders and a 70-strong choir from Bishop Benson school, the head of the Anglican Church said: "The reason for being here is to demonstrate that nothing changes us more than prayer."
