You can listen to Pastor Jay’s sermon here:
Today we marked several occasions: The 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day, the 80th Anniversary of Kristallnacht, and Veterans’ Day.
Shortly after Pastor Jay’s sermon, we tolled our bells at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month and took a moment of silence to remember the fallen and pray for lasting peace even in our own day.
This day, amid celebrations and lamentations, may you know God’s lasting peace.
