Thought for the week (from Sunday’s sermon)

Thought for the Week | Roots |

Remembrance Sunday calls us to remember that that no-one is ever forgotten by the God who calls each of us by name, who has the names of those living and dead and still to come engraved on the palms of his hands – the hands of the crucified and the living God, who knows what it is to suffer and to live, to die by violence and to rise to a greater life, who calls us all to live for one another, to love one another and, if necessary, to lay down our lives for one another as he did for us.
