So we went to the Remembrance Day ceremony today in Belleville, and I was so impressed! I was expecting the regular city dignitaries and a few veterans, but the place was so packed we couldn't even see the speakers! It was really very encouraging.
And Jesus was a part of it! They prayed, they read Scripture, and the message was very Christ focused. The chaplain had some great lines, including something like this:
"Many people think that soldiers are people who like guns. But that's not who we are. We are people who sacrifice to make the world safe, free, and just."
And he said, "As long as there are tyrants who oppress their citizens and threaten freedom, I pray that there will be Canadians ready to answer the call to protect those who need it."
I found it very inspiring.
