Dear <<First Name>>,
Remembrance Sunday pauses to remember all those lives lost to war, which we will do on Sunday with two minutes of silence starting at 11:00 (please be prompt!), then by hearing the Fauré Requiem sung by combined AIC and Eclectic Voices choirs throughout our worship service.
The day also invites us to pray for peace and seek ways to overcome conflict without war and violence. In 2 Corinthians, Paul tells us that Jesus' new life and grace assign each of us a role as an "ambassador of reconciliation." That means we are sent by Christ to be peacemakers in the world, to find ways to bring people together to break down injustice and overcome disputes in ways that do not leave behind victors and victims, but friends and neighbours.
This work is urgently needed in our world today. Join us on Sunday to remember by listening to music, listening to one another, and listening to God, that we might become "ambassadors of reconciliation" in Christ's name.
