MEMORY AND REMEMBRANCE

Each year we gather on Remembrance Sunday to remember how many lives have been lost in war; how many families afflicted. If peace is sometimes described as the absence of war, then it is true to say the world has never been at peace. War has sadly always been a part of human existence. And many are the lives that have been given in the hope that peace would come.
Remembrance Sunday has become remembrance of all those who lost their lives in both world wars, as well all conflicts since. Perhaps it is television coverage that now makes us aware to a greater extent just how many lives are caught up in conflict. As we witness the extent of violence and war in this very visual way, we long for the day when all wars will cease.
In the liturgical seasons we follow through the year at church, today is also the Second Sunday of the Kingdom Season: a reminder that it will not always be this way. The hope of God's Kingdom gives us promises for the future.
But today, we remember all those who with great courage have laid down their lives through a desire to see peace. Today we do not glorify war: we remember the horror of it, and the courage of those who give their life to a greater cause. We will remember them. God also will remember them.

Daily Prayer

The Church has a tradition of daily prayer which embraces the three key elements of praise, intercession and engagement with scripture.

This page links to the C of E Daily Prayer website allowing us all to join in this daily pattern of prayer. When using the Offices individually read both the priest's and people's part.

The Offices are from the Book of Common Worship for today GMT.
