Mary Kidd ‘said it with flowers’, we sang it in three hymns from the Hymns of Peace and Remembrance, a collection written to mark the centenary of Armistice Day and the end of the First World War, and we heard some of the pieces from the Centena Collection, each inspired by and based on the life of a real individual who experienced the First World War.
And at the end of last night’s moving Sunday@Six service we prayed for peace: “Father in heaven, form in us the likeness of your Son and deepen his life within us. Send us as witnesses of gospel joy into a world of fragile peace and broken promises. Touch all hearts with your love so we may, in turn, love each other. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.”
