Remembrance Sunday

This morning I attended the Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph in Belfast and there was a good turn out of councillors from the DUP, UUP, SDLP and Alliance.  The first wreath was laid by the new Lord Lieutenant of Belfast, Dame Mary Peters, as the representative of Her Majesty the Queen.

Tonight I attended the Remembrance Day service in the Free Presbyterian Church in Magherafelt.  It was a good service and Rev William McCrea took as his text John 15:13 - Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.  He said that we should remember (1) the soldiers who fought for our freedom (2) the saints of God who suffer for their faith and (3) the Saviour who died for our forgiveness.
