Personal gestures of Remembrance.

This Remembrance Sunday, as with the other commemorations of the year, we are not able to gather in the communal way that is familiar and important to us. Nevertheless we can be united even at a distance as we share the familiar words, and the traditional silence of our remembering.

I have created a very simple Act of Remembrance to use at home on Sunday 8th or Wednesday 11th November. (The Silence is at about the 3 mins 30 seconds mark if you want to time it to keep silence at 11am). The link is here.

Below I have gathered broadcasts that may help you mark this day more fully:
