A time of reflection

A time to remember together

It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since COVID really began to hit us here in Scotland. So, we’re being encouraged to take time on Tuesday 23rd March to remember and reflect. It’s the first anniversary of the lockdown, and it’s been some year – strangeness for us all, and anxiety, loss and sadness for many. This Day of Reflection is being encouraged by the Marie Curie cancer care charity, and many different groups are joining in. The plan is to take a minute’s silence at midday and then light a candle in our windows at 8.00 pm. Sadly we still can’t have any physical gatherings, but the church is having an online act of remembering from 11.50 that day, for about 15 minutes. This is going to be on Zoom, and it’s open to anybody. There’ll be some music, some images to help guide our thoughts, a chance to reflect and remember, and the silence at midday. Maybe most importantly, there’ll be a sense that we can be together in this moment. Everybody is welcome to join us, and here is the link – https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86791224802 . If you’ve not used Zoom before and would like to join in, please contact us and we’ll help you get on to it.
