All are welcome.
To remember things at times is something that we often will struggle with.
When I was in my previous charge in Saltcoats, one of my colleagues in Ardrossan Presbytery was sitting on the stairwell of the manse. She was like the grand old Duke of York who had 10,000 men who was "neither up nor down" sitting in the middle of the stairs. Her mother, who lived with her at the time, came out and asked, "What are you sitting on the stairs for?" She replied, " I can't remember what I was going upstairs for and rather than come back down I am sitting here trying to remember."
There are some things that will always be worth remembering. Many husbands are told that the best way to remember your wedding anniversary is to forget it once.
This Sunday Morning is all about Remembrance, something of national importance and rightly so, thinking of those who are our servicemen currently serving abroad in dangerous theatre's conflict as well as remembering those who have given something of themselves in the past, even their very lives. While they may not grow old as we grow old, we should never take for granted the sacrifice of those who have ensured the peace and freedoms we all too easily enjoy.
Have a great week. Whoever you are please feel free to come through for tea and coffee after the service. If you have to race away we wish you Godspeed and hope you have enjoyed your time with us
