Remembrance 100

Home » News » Remembrance 100

To mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the first World War, members of the Boys' Brigade had made an individual poppy. This was helped to make the stunning and effective display on the pulpit. The lectern was adorned with the Banner Group's Remembrance Day banner.
Leading the Remembrance Service, Aylesbury Creativity Group began with this prayer:
"A hundred years ago today World war One ended. So we pray: Eternal God, you know the names of every man and woman, every child and every creature that lost their lives in the Great War. You know the names of those who are dying in conflicts around the world today. You know our names and call us to be peacemakers, generous and compassionate. Bless our time together now. In Jesus' name. Amen."
During the service the congregation came forward to light a candle for loved ones lost in conflict. At the end, was this Benediction Prayer:
"May God who takes no sides, bless you with a heart that embraces all need and all creation.
May jesus, who laid down his life for us all, bless you with a love that knows no boundaries.
May the Holy Spirti lead you in the path of peace, that you may lead others. Amen."
