Sympathy on the Death of Rev Dr Ian Paisley

22 September 2014

On behalf of myself and the Methodist Church in Ireland I extend sincere sympathy to Mrs Eileen Paisley and her family on the death of Rev Dr Ian Paisley. I ask your prayers for for them in their grief. Dr Paisley was a preacher and political leader who moved on the world stage but retained his roots in home soil. He had remarkable ability as an orator to communicate with the masses and at the same time take an interest in the life of the ordinary person on the street. In recent years his willingness to take steps towards building a strong working relationship with political opponents helped to build a peace process which I hope will become a lasting legacy for future generations.
