Remembrance Sunday was the fourth such service organized for PGIMF by Veronica Dyck on the theme of peace. Her beautiful booklet contained appropriate readings and prayers concerning peace, and in place of the sermon, she read excerpts from various articles on the theme of Lent which were available through MCC. Beginning with Psalm 34, which includes the phrase, “O taste and see that the Lord is good”, we were already starting our preparation for the Lord’s supper (people came forward in small groups for communion). The booklet opened with a reading from Dorothee Soelle articulating the gulf that separates the Pax Christi (the personal faith, the peace of Christ and God within us and among believers) and the Pax Romana (the ‘peace’ imposed by armies by killing thousands, the very sort of foreign policy towards religious activists which was responsible for Christ’s death).
