Reader, I'm heading for fifty, and women half my age have just told me I look cool...!
I walked home down St Giles, resplendent in sunshine and copper and gold leaves. The bells of St Mary Magdalen and St Giles rang in unison, as the crowds began assembling for the Service of Remembrance by the war memorial. We had our own silence and prayer at 11AM, warm sunlight and stillness streaming through our prayer room window. It was an opportunity to quietly recall loved ones as well as those who, in every generation, have paid the ultimate price for decisions made by politicians... and to add our prayers to so many, for a spirit of peace and reconciliation throughout the world.
