Lest We Forget

It is right that we take time to remember, O God, and to lament the sacrifice of so many. It is not the minute or hour that we take to call their deeds to mind that vindicates the giving over of all their tomorrows. It is what we do with our todays that speaks volumes. Amen.
A Liturgy of Remembrance, Melrose United Church

Gathered together in a service dedicated to remembrance, we lit a Candle of Thanksgiving, a Candle of Peace, and a Candle of Hope. The hymns, Last Post, O Canada, Reveillé moved us all. Perhaps most importantly, the congregation sang out "Make Me a Channel of Your Peace".

May we all strive to be channels of peace.
