Feast of the Transfiguration and Hiroshima Day

Service Date: 
6 August, 2017

 

Worship was led by the Revd. Robert Beard who reflected on the contrast between the light and ecstasy of the Transfiguration and the destructiveness of the dropping of the bomb on Hiroshima. The latter was starkly illustrated by the image of the shadow of a little girl skipping etched on a wall as the bomb fell.

As individuals, and as a society we have a choice  in our daily lives, in our actions and our relationships - to encourage and build people to be fulfilled and the best they can be, to acknowledge what is good in them, or to belittle and destroy them.

Hymns:
