Reconciliation and Remembrance

Posted on 09 November 2008
A well-attended congregation, including the Girl's Brigade, gathered at Ferndale today for a service of reconciliation and remembrance.

Flags representative of the Church and its friends were hoisted on the flag pole, the congregation encouraged to engage in an act of peace-sharing and the two minute silence observed, accompanied by a cornet playing the last post. In his brief address Stephen noted that answering such questions as why God allows suffering is impossible. However, God, in the person of Jesus, entered our world, a member of a despised race, his legitimacy questionable, his family uncomprehending, betrayed by his friends, unjustly condemned and suffered excruciatingly painful execution. Thus, he can understand our pain and has addressed the greatest need in humanity: the sin that lies behind the tragedies of our fallen world. Thus, behind our sin and beyond our present experience of life there is one who has one who died for us and will, one day, renew the world.
