Lest We Forget
On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month
FIELDS the poppies blow
the crosses row on row,
our place; and in the sky
still bravely singing, fly
heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead.
Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Remembering Our Departed Brethren

District Meeting November 7, 2008
Brethren, let us set aside a solemn time of remembrance for our departed
brothers. Their memory, in turn, provides us with the opportunity to
bear witness to our belief in the immortality of the soul. Our physical
death cannot keep us from the face of God, whose strong grip will free
us and lift us out of the shadow of death into that Inner Chamber, where
in His light we shall see light.
Let us pray:
Most gracious and most glorious Lord God, we bless thy Holy Name for our
departed brothers who have laid down the working tools of life and are
now at rest from their labours. We shall remember Thy loving kindness
and Thy tender mercies to these Thy servants. As we are called to
remember Thy Grace which enabled them to fight the good fight, to be
faithful to the end, and at last to obtain their victory, we seek Thy
presence with us. Guide our thoughts and works and actions that they may
be pleasing in Thy sight. AMEN
So mote it be.

cometh from the Lord who made heaven and earth.
|He will not
suffer they foot to be moved, He that keepeth thee will not
that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
|The Lord is thy
keeper; the Lord is they shade upon they right hand.
shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
|The Lord shall
preserve thee from all evil; He shall preserve thy soul.
shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time
forth and even for evermore.
