Remembrance: Armistice Centenary - 11 November

Pipers lead the Legion and organisations to St. Mungo's
St. Mungo’s welcomed over 200 people from the British Legion, our armed forces, army and air cadets, Scouts Association, Girl Guiding, Boys Brigade, and civil dignitaries, in addition to our normal Sunday morning congregation. Sir Robert Clerk Bt, OBE, Lord Lieutenant of Midlothian was representing Her Majesty the Queen.

This Armistice Centenary service was particularly poignant falling on the11th day of the 11th month, exactly 100 years from the signing of the Armistice, bringing to an end over 4 years of WW1 hostilities.

The Rev John Urquhart led the service, with Penicuik Silver Band leading the music for the praise.
Consequences of what we say - 4 November
We continued our journey through the book of James starting with a poem by Dr. Malcolm Guite, chaplain at Girton College Cambridge, during the 'Informal Time'. Malcolm posed the question 'what if?' That simple question that haunts all of us from time to time. His poem tests not only your thinking but your vocabulary too.
