November 2018 Letter from Sarah

SarahFarrimondthumbNovember is a time for remembrance. All Saints’ Day on November 1st celebrates all saints, whether known or unknown. All Souls’ Day on November 2nd is traditionally a time to remember with those who have died, especially those who are known to us personally. And November 11th of course is Remembrance Sunday, when we remember with respect and gratitude those who have died in war. This year, as the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War is particularly significant.

Remembrance - or remembering is about looking back, taking note of where we have come from and the people who made our lives today possible. It is also about re-membering - putting back together something that has come apart somehow. Good remembrance must have an impact on how we live now.

As November moves into December we move from a season of remembrance into Advent and looking forward to the great story of God coming into the world to put it back together and to call us humans to co-operate with that too.

This comes with my best wishes and prayers

Revd. Dr. Sarah Farrimond
