Here at St Michael and All Angels, we are entering a new season in the Church’s year; the season of remembrance. This month we will be commemorating Remembrance Sunday on November 12 starting at 10:50am, in the peace garden, followed by a service in the Village Hall with refreshments afterward. All are most welcome to join us. Unfortunately, this year, war again seems much closer to us because of what’s happening in Ukraine and in the Holy Land. There are many other ongoing conflicts around the world, including Sudan, Ethiopia and the Yemen, and other nations such as Syria and Afghanistan are still suffering the devastating consequences of war. The terrible images on our tv screens remind us of the sad realities of war, and bring home to us the severe consequences for ordinary people. So this year, as well as remembering those from our village who gave their lives for our country in the two World Wars, and all conflicts since, and also remembering those known personally to us, we will be thinking of and praying for all those suffering today, and praying for peace. For many fighting in the two World Wars, Christian faith helped them through the horrors of war. Their faith gave them hope that things would be better and that good would overcome the darkness in the end. It is this hope we share today. Christians believe faith gives us strength, consolation and hope to carry on through the most difficult of times.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning time, we will remember them.

Lead Minister for Caldecote with Childerley, Dry Drayton and Hardwick
