Armistice Day address, 11 November 2018

Listen with Windows Media Player

One hundred years after the Great War ended, Father James Harding talks about impressions and lessons from recent visits to war graves on the Western Front and looks at how Christians respond to war.

’I might have been expected to return from my visits to the Western Front an ardent pacifist, but I did not. ... While war is undoubtedly evil, we are living in a fallen world and sometimes it is necessary.’

You can listen to Dr Harding’s Armistice Day address here.
