Next week we will commemorate Remembrance Day. It is a time for us to reflect on the value of peace and to remember those who are in the service of protecting us. It is also a time to remember those who are in the service of protecting us. It is also a time to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice protecting the Canadian way of life. As we ready ourselves for the importance of Remembrance Day, let us pray.
Thank you for the gift of peace.
Sometimes, it seems like we could never
make a difference
in our world that is filled with conflict.
We know that if we truly live as peaceful
we can make a difference.
Help us to be the instruments of peace you
call us to be.
We ask this through the name of Jesus,
Main Entrance - Mr. Halyk
