Remembrance Sunday

November 9, 2017

Wee reminder that we gather as a community at Bearsden Cross of a service of remembrance at 10.45.


Then we have our morning worship reflecting more on remembrance at 11.30

And in the evening at 6.30 we begin to fill the silence with the hopes and living those who gave their lives for us wished as the choir lead us in music for Remembrance.


Here are some words from that service.


Remembrance is our own sanctus
Silence our own agnus dei
our own holy, holy holy
our own lamb of God


that takes the pain of conflict
and sees the God of love
spread out across the battlefields
caught up in the inglorious inhumanity of war


Holy, holy, holy God
God of the powerless and weak
heaven and earth cry with in-glory
hosannas hushed in silence
blessed is the one
now gone, in God’s name
hosanna in the lowest places


Lamb of God who takes the sin of the world
Lamb of God who takes the pain and conflict
Lamb of God who takes the suffering and memory
Lamb of God who takes the fear and terror
Lamb of God who takes
grant us your peace
your compassion
your sharing of this moment
your hurt
your cross
your tomb


Remembrance is our own sanctus
silence our own agnus dei
and it has not yet redeemed us


It has instead
left silence
we scare dare fill


Holy, holy holy
Come God
and redeem the times
