‘Living the life of the Spirit filled with Peace’
Welcome to Sunday morning worship. Today is Remembrance Day and the churches in Dronfield (CTDD), on their Facebook page, are live streaming the open air act of Remembrance at the War Memorial outside of the Library.
The service will begin at 10:55am and will finish by 11:15am. Please watch the service, as well as our own, and tell as many people who may have wished to be present, but because of the restrictions are unable to, where they can see it.
This is the 75th Anniversary of the end of the war in Europe on 8th May 1945 and the restrictions we are all living in at the moment make for a very different and poignant moment of the year to then. The Christmas ritual I am focussing on today are the evergreens we use to decorate our homes which remind us of the life we know in Jesus when all of creation around us seems to be asleep.
As it is Remembrance Day we will also be thinking of the poppy which reminds us of the horror of war as well the hope we can all share in of the day when all wars will cease and peace will reign.
Please take this time to worship and to be encouraged together. You can find the service on our YouTube Channel using the link below. (available from 8 am on Sunday 8th November) The sermon notes are at the bottom of the page.
