Rev.d Mark Macaulay      Remembrance Service           8th November 2020 [Download]

             I find it quite amazing that humankind takes itself so seriously when we are even more vulnerable than the rest of the natural world. Our symbol of commemoration of the ending of conflict and those who paid the ultimate price for our apparent freedom is a paper poppy. What it symbolises is just how quickly the natural world reasserted itself upon the mud and blood fields of Northern Europe after World War I, the “war to end all wars” until just 21 years later.
