On this Memorial Day, we pray “The Prayer for Heroic Service” from The Book of Common Prayer, page 839, No. 6:
O Judge of the nations, we remember before you with grateful hearts the men and women of our country who in the day of decision ventured much for the liberties we now enjoy. Grant that we may not rest until all the people of this land share the benefits of true freedom and gladly accept its disciplines. This we ask in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Have a safe Memorial Day, and remember to give thanks for those who served by giving their lives for others.
We hope to see you in church next Sunday for The Day of Pentecost - remember to wear red!
Please note that the church office will be closed on Memorial Day.
