This year saw the one hundredth anniversary of the start of the First World War and the seventieth anniversary of the D-Day invasion in the Second World War. As we remember these events we can ask, “Are we heading for another and greater war?” In the D-Day remembrance service, the Queen stated that we must strive for peace so that in the future we do not have to erect monuments to young people who gave their lives in service to their country. Our Anglo-Saxon people would agree with this statement but it is increasingly becoming apparent that peace will elude us. The world is in a crisis situation. There is the Russian expansion in the Ukraine, the rise of ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) in the Middle East, and political unrest in many parts of the world including Libya, Sudan, the Gaza strip, and even the gradual loss of freedom in Hong Kong. Some African countries are in extreme turmoil trying to deal with the Ebola virus.
