Remembrance Sunday

On the second Sunday in November – Remembrance Sunday – we remember all those who died in the First and Second World Wars and in subsequent conflicts.  We remember servicemen and women who survived but were left with physical or mental disabilities.  We remember families who lost loved ones.  We pray for them all and give thanks for their courage and self-sacrifice and for the peace and freedom they won for us.

We pray that we may be given the grace to “do justice, and to love kindness and to walk humbly” with our God (NRSV, Micah 6:8).
