Blessed are the peacemakers

‘Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God’, was the theme on Remembrance Day, Sunday 11 November, at Wanneroo Crossways Uniting Church.

Early in the worship, the children were told of various symbols of ‘Peace’. After the story of Noah and the dove returning to the Ark with a small olive branch, the children distributed small olive branches to all in the congregation.

When the children returned, everyone processed to the front of the church to encircle the world with symbols and prayers of peace, olive sprigs and red poppies. While the greatest ‘peacemaker’ of all was our focus, we stood in prayerful silence. We concluded with, ‘The Peace of God which passes all understanding keep your hearts and minds’.
