Armed Forces Day vigil

Armed Forces Day vigil

A vigil on Armed Forces Day

Our silent vigil will take place 11.00-12.00 in the area of the Pillar of Salt on Angel Hill. The theme is ‘Unarmed forces: women peacemakers’.

We hope as many Friends as possible will join us in witnessing to the Peace Testimony.

Meeting at the Meeting House in time to start walking to Angel Hill at 10:40.  Please contact Jill or Pam or Graham G for more details.

Working for peace and the absence of conflict is the best way to support members of the armed forces and to keep them out of harm’s way.

Not all of us in our Quaker family are absolute pacifists, but all unite in an overwhelming and Spirit-led commitment to the avoidance of war and the use of outward weapons. Many friends in other churches share our aspiration, if not our testimony, and it is in this spirit and longing for the peaceable kingdom that we hold this vigil.
