A Prayer for Sunday 8th November 2020 – Remembrance Sunday

Today, we remember.

All those who have died in warfare, as combatants or civilians.

Today we remember.

All those scarred by warfare, physically and mentally, and by the challenges of returning home to a world that just doesnt’t make sense any more.

Today we remember.

All those areas where war is still life, reality, daily existence, and we cry out for peace in those lands.

Today we remember.

All those campaigning tirelessly to end weapons production and sales, politiking and economic trading where lives of innocents are seen as acceptable marginal risk.

Today we remember.

May we never forget your call to be peacemakers, God, and may we always seek to speak truth to power, represent what is just and folow your call on our lives, in the hope we never again have lists of names, wasted and thrown away, to remember.

Amen

Peace be with you

I am a Music Therapist, Worship Leader and Theologian with The Ordinary Office, an online community for disabled and disenfranchised Christians. As a writer, seeker and learner, I have a special interest in music and spirituality, and I believe that Jesus' message of love for one another supersedes religious rules and doctrines that harm. Focusing on inclusive and liberation theologies, through a lens of disability and trauma-informed approaches, I take my lived experiences and transform pain into action, living out God's call upon my life as a 'Twitter Mystic' and 'Prophetic Voice' - although I just get on with calling things as I see them without the fancy labels, really. I hope you find something here which interests and challenges you. Feel free to contact me for discussion any time!
