LIGHTING THE CHRIST CANDLE by James Traquair, Gathering, Pentecost 2 2017
One: We light the Christ candle.
All: The Christ candle reminds us that the light of Christ shines on the road to peace and illuminates our most difficult hours.
One: We light the Candle of Remembrance.
All: The Candle of Remembrance reminds us of the supreme sacrifice of those who have defended our freedom and our peace forever and for all.

ACT OF REMEMBRANCE
One: They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.  At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.
All: WE WILL REMEMBER THEM
One: Lest we forget.
All: LEST WE FORGET.
