Worship @ Home on Wednesday  11.11.20

Here is an outline of our Worship @ Home on Wednesday which you can use on your own or with other people who are in your household.

As today is 11th November, we focus on Remembrance through words, prayers and reflection

Prayer

Lord God in this season of Remembrance

may the time spent here be one where I pause to truly remember those who have served in the cause of peace.

I dedicated this time to their memory. Amen

Poem

Shortly after losing a friend in Ypres in 1915, a Canadian doctor, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae was inspired by the sight of poppies growing in battle-scarred fields to write his now famous poem ‘In Flanders Fields’.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead.

Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved and were loved, and now we lie,

In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

 If ye break faith with us who die

 We shall not sleep,

 though poppies grow In Flanders fields.

Video Reflection

Bible Readings

God is our refuge and our strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. So we will not be afraid, even if the earth is shaken.

Psalm 46:1-2

He will settle disputes among great nations. They will hammer their swords into ploughs and their spears into pruning knives. Nations will never again go to war, never prepare for battle again.

 Isaiah 2:4

 My commandment is this: love one another, just as I love you. The greatest love you can have for your friends is to give your life for them.

John 15:9-13

Blessing

Go in peace

Looking back with gratitude and humility

Living now with grace and love

Looking forward with hope and faith

Amen
