Je suis Charlie…

I would rather die on my feet than live on my knees.

Today the world stands together united against those who seek to wreak death and destruction in our lives. United despite the dark shadow of fear that is whispering across many hearts at this time. There will always be death and destruction in our world and deluded fanatics who seek to cow us into submission to their evil, twisted ideals in the name of religion or whatever else their crazed minds can dredge up. But when we stand together as one people regardless of race, religion, or indeed no beliefs, in heartfelt solidarity, in the name of democracy and freedom of speech, we shine as a bright and hugely powerful force, a blazing light in the darkness we find ourselves facing. The nightmare that has unfolded in France over recent days is uniting the world at this time and that in itself should tell us our unity and determination to stand up against our attackers will ensure no terrorists or any other dark forces will succeed in bringing us to our knees. Together we stand united.

“I would rather die on my feet than live on my knees.”

Lest We Forget…

 

United Prayer

Living God, by whose love we are united with one another across the boundaries of time and space, we thank you for this day of remembering and reflection.

We remember before you the men and women of all nations who have died as a result of war – those we have known and those whose memory we treasure; those we never knew; and those who have died unknown.

As we remember them, we also remember those families who grieve today and those who suffer still as a result of conflict.

We ask that you would help us to learn how to live in peace with each other.

In the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace, we pray. Amen.”

“They shall not grow old…” United across the boundaries of time and space…

“Let us pray that we may be worthy of the sacrifice made on our behalf.”

“They shall grown not old as we that are left grow old;

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them”
