Remembering Today

Updated: Dec 10, 2022

Dear All Saints and St Marys

This weekend we gather in different ways and in different places for Remembrance Sunday. At All Saints Church we join with our Scout Groups and at St Marys we gather at the war memorial in the park. And although we are in different parts of Fishponds, we will be joined together by the collective silences, with a multitude of other gatherings all over the world, as people hold a pause.

A moment. A time. A Space. A Silence.

There is power to a collective gathering of remembrance. When we look around at others who join in the same simultaneous act, there is a glimpse of hope. In our unified silence I often find a gentle defiance that we know that we are people who are not made for war but for peace. In this I find a renewed commitment to want to be part of a more just world. I look forward to us remembering together.

A prayer of Peace (Church of England)

O God of the nations, as we look to that day when you will gather people from north and south, east and west, into the unity of your peaceable Kingdom, guide with your just and gentle wisdom all who take counsel for the nations of the world, that all your people may spend their days in security, freedom, and peace, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
