CALL TO WORSHIP
On this day of Remembrance, O God, we give thanks:
For peacekeepers and pacifists; for those who served on the front lines, and those who protest and march; for those who volunteered and those who waited anxiously at home; for those who hoped that things would get better, and those who could not stand by and wait.
We give thanks for those who believed that the world could be a better place.
We remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice, trusting that others could and would carry the torch.
We give thanks for those who were once enemies who have become friends and allies. For these things we pray….AMEN

We honour all those who have given and will continue to give of themselves for the sake of peace.

At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,
we will remember them. We will remember them.
