Keep us, good Lord,
Under the shadow of your mercy
In this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
And lift up all that are brought low,
That we might rejoice in your comfort
Knowing that nothing can separate us from your love. Amen.
May you find blessing and peace at this difficult time.
PLEASE NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO 12 NOON SERVICE ON 15TH NOVEMBER. PARISH COUNCIL WILL BE MEETING.
We are some of the fortunate people of the world who have spent our lives living and working in a Liberal Democracy which for all its failings has given us some of the greatest freedoms and opportunities ever enjoyed by humans. It is a truly wonderful thing and should be treasured by all. We have Magna Carta as a great foundation and we add to this the great cry at the French Revolution of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity. These basic ideals are lived out every day in our Parliaments, our Courts and other institutions and we benefit accordingly. It is the very pluralism of our societies that creates the contradictory question for us of how much can a system tolerate. The events in France in the last two weeks would appal even the hardest person and the temptation is to demonise the perpetrators entire tribe and/or religion.
The contradiction that we must live is that our system must tolerate people different from ourselves, people who disagree with us and even people who may seek our harm or destruction. If our response to those who mean us harm from within is brutal, unthinking and motivated by similar hate that we witness from some of them then our free society has failed. It is painful, horrible and gut wrenching to contemplate some of the acts some humans are capable of inflicting on others but if our response is one of revenge – we have failed. What we call the ‘West’ must stand even taller as we continue to emphasise freedom, forgiveness, reconciliation and love after and during law breakers are brought to justice.
Our societies are under greater pressure than ever before. – please God we are worthy to the challenge as we continue to show the world the wisdom of human freedom.

Lighten our darkness, Lord we pray, and by your great mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night; for the love of your only Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Grant us, Lord, the lamp of charity which never fails, that it may burn in us and shed its light on those around us , and that by its brightness we may have a vision of that holy City, where dwells the true and never-failing light, Jesus Christ our Lord. amen.
