the hearts and minds of those in authority, and bring

There has been a huge public response to the
Tower of London poppy display. Millions have
visited the ‘art installation’. I wonder if this
because the response to the commemoration of
the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World
War One can only be marked in a spiritual way.
There have been critics of the sea of poppies,
saying that in some way it glorifies war, or
becomes nationalistic and does nothing to
display the horror of war. It makes me think that
the only way in which we can mark
Remembrance, or any of the other events
surrounding this anniversary, is through our
It is only in the context of the cross and
resurrection that we can make sense of our
humanity. These events above all show us a
side of humanity which is repugnant. We see our
ability to destroy each other. We should be
celebrating that in 2014 British troops have left
Afghanistan, but the reality is it means we have
been fighting fairly continuously since the
beginning of the First World War and we will
probably go on doing so. Looking at the 100
years since 1914 would be unutterably
depressing if all we could focus on is this aspect
of humanity. Instead we are called to look to the
cross which takes seriously our human failings
and also points us to a new hope. We need the
art and the spiritual dimension of our lives to lift
us to new possibilities.
As a parish we will be continuing our
commemoration of the beginning of WW1 with a
concert on Saturday 15th November at St Peter &
St Paul. The Oxford Welsh Male Voice Choir will
perform a concert IN PEACE AND
REMEMBRANCE. The concert will feature
inspiring and moving pieces in the unique fourpart harmony that makes this choir truly Welsh.
The concert will also feature talented young
soprano Hannah Nye together with readings on
the theme of peace and remembrance. Please
join us for this very special and unique occasion.
