This Sunday is Remembrance Sunday. This service will be an opportunity to thank those who have served in the Armed Forces of our country as well as to remember those who work for peace in our own times. We continue the series looking at how Christians cope with life. The sermon will be on Service. Everyone is welcome to join us. Leading us in music will be Music Director Cindy accompanied by Gordon on the organ. The choir anthem will be Put Peace into Each Other’s Hands by St. Columbo and arranged by Jane Holstein. Lois Cutler will be sharing some of her remembrances of the Second World War and Eden Dennis and Bill White will be laying the wreath.
This Sunday, the Justice and Action Committee will have white poppies available. The white poppy asks us to remember victims of war, to challenge the militarism in our world and to build a culture of peace. We remember that over 90% of the people killed in war are civilians. White poppies were first worn in the 1930s to express the desire for peace in the face of looming war in Europe.
