This week's reflection reminds us that Jesus feels and understands our loneliness.
Reflection of the Week - 7 November 2018
Posted in Faith
The nation pauses for a moment in remembrance- remembering those who gave their lives in battle. The bugle sounds the 'Last Post' in remembrance. I wear rosemary for remembrance. I watch as a laurel wreath is reverently placed on the war memorial in remembrance.
Then he took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, broke it and gave it to them saying' this is my body, given for you; do this in remembrance of me.' Luke 22:19
Every hour of every day, I want to remember the sacrifice of Jesus the Christ, for me and for the world, and give thanks.
Merciful God, I remember those who died in battle, and those who returned with battle scars, both physical and emotional. I pray that they may know the peace and power of your presence.
