Lighting candles in the darkness
« on: July 03, 2015, 04:09:45 am »
I hope this doesn't count as political because I think it is simply about humanity or inhumanity which is regardless of creed, race or political opinion.

A minute"s silence is being held in the UK today at 12 noon our time (7am EST) in remembrance of the 38 holidaymakers gunned down on a Tunisian Beach last week.

I am having a Eucharist at 11.30 am to remember all those who die by the violence of others. Prayers and good thoughts if you would please.

I'm not wanting to start any discussion here just light a few candles.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

I don't think that counts as political.  I think you're good as long as people don't start screaming at each other.  :)

It is good to remember the lost.  Holding up the families and loved ones of the people lost in that attack.
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

My thoughts go out to the victims and their families.
From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggity beasties and things that go bump in the night...good Lord deliver us!
