The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ

And the love of God

And the fellowship of The Holy Spirit

Be with us all evermore


For today ....

A Word of Scripture

Be holy in all you do,

since it is the Holy One

who has called you,

and scripture says:

Be holy,

for I am holy.

1 Peter 1:15-16

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved and were loved, and now we lie,

In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields.

By John McCrae
