‘We mark Remembrance Sunday in the hope that we will remember the costliness of war, not only the wars of the twentieth century which engulfed so much of the world, but also the smaller yet deadly conflicts of this century. For it surely seems there are lessons as yet unlearned while violent conflicts take repeated tolls on human communities and the very fabric of God’s creation.’
