french flag Unfortunately the murders in Paris yesterday are neither the first and unlikely to be the last of their kind but fact does not make them any less personal or painful. This week’s collect (special prayer in Church) seems apposite:

Almighty Father, your will is to restore all things in your beloved Son, the king of all. Govern the hearts and minds of those in authority, and bring the families of the nations, divided and torn apart by the ravages of sin, to be subject to his just and gentle rule. Amen.

“It is not the refugees who create terrorism but terrorism that causes refugees.” (anon on the internet)

Peace be with you.

It has to be said that…

…sometimes only the passive voice will do.

Palm Sunday, 2014

We cannot escape the cross. There is no Christianity without it. There is no Christianity without self-denial, and self-denial hurts. (D. W. Cleverley Ford)

A Prayer from “Common Worship”

Lord Jesus Christ, you humbled yourself in taking the form of a servant, and in obedience died on the cross for our salvation. Give us the mind to follow you and to proclaim you as Lord and King, to the glory of God the Father. Amen. (Palm Sunday, post communion prayer)

Sir Winston Churchill
