“He is not God of the dead, but of the living; for to him all of them are alive.”
Every day throughout the year in this church we carry out a small act of remembrance. For members of the congregation who have died, on the anniversary of their death, we remember them by name and we pray for them. Our role has been described as the “remembrancers of the unremembered”.
At this time of year, remembering those who have gone before us takes on a particular significance. On Monday we commemorated All Souls Day and, as an act of remembrance, we read out the names of our friends and family members who have died.
