Armistice Day address, 11 November 2018
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.’
The October edition is now available online. Printed copies will be available in Church from Sunday while they last, but you get it first and forever online! See below how to get a handy email when each new issue is available.
Our Printed Heritage page now includes all available issues up to October of 1962.
