Lest We Forget

Here in Canada we celebrated Remembrance Day today, November 11th. Today was one of the few times that this special day falls on a Sunday.

We heard from a veteran who had served in World War II at our church service this morning. We also paused for a moment's silence in memory of those who fought for our freedom. I thought it was good for us to do this during our service because there is a strong parallel between what those veterans did for us and what Jesus Christ did at Calvary to forgive our sins and buy "real" freedom and peace.

I've included a postcard showing a field of poppies taken from the new booklet I picked up the other day, THE ART OF GOD.

May we never take for granted the freedoms that others paid for at such a great price!
