Prayers and Reflections for VE Day 75th Anniversary – 8th May

It’s now 75 years since the guns fell silent over Europe and the work of rebuilding and reconciliation began. The youngest serving soldiers from that war are now well into their nineties, and we will not have their living memory with us for many more years. It had been hoped to make a long weekend of remembrance and thanksgiving. Despite the limitations imposed on these planned events, it is right that we should still quiet ourselves and give thanks for peace.

As well as the other means of marking this occasion, here is a simple video using some of the prayers and words prepared previously for this time:

Stations of The Resurrection

Heard of Stations of the Cross? Well, this is Stations of the Resurrection. The cross was never meant to be a stop-off point, but more a door through to the next stage of the story. Here we follow 17 stations which take the story on.

It’s quite long, and (I hope) quite thought provoking. So, I’d suggest using the video a bit at a time. Stop when you need to, and return when you’re ready.
