Eventually our long awaited return to Shepherds Dene on Armistice Day and a beautiful autumn day.
A day of prayer and reflection was led by Rev'd Gill Alexander and Rev'd Michael Sadgrove
The peaceful surroundings of Shepherds Dene gave us the opportunity to quietly remember all those who have lost their lives in conflicts, past and present, to reflect on the events of the last two years amid our changing planet, to gain inspiration from one another and hope for the future.
The world you have made is wonderful
We are sorry for our exploitation of the earth
We are fearful of the consequences of what we have done
Lord have mercy on our planet
Give us the courage to speak
The strength to make sacrifices
And the will to change
In your love for what you have made
Heal and restore our land.
AMEN ( Inspiring Prayer)
