As 11am approaches, a short service by the war memorial takes place at St Mark’s. We honour the dead, of all sides in conflict – remembering the sacrifices made by others for our freedoms today.
Faced with all the evil in the world, and all that is going wrong, do we just feel powerless? What can we do about Syria, Iraq, Iran – and conflicts here and now in the western hemisphere? But we can – in our own lives – strive to live in a different way. We can because we are the body of Christ and through Christ can strive towards all that builds peace.
