Statement of Faith: Silence is Not Enough

Here’s a responsive statement of faith for Remembrance Day. It was written by Roddy Hamilton, and posted on the New Kilpatrick Parish Church website.

Statement of Faith:
Silence is Not Enough

In our remembrance we know
silence is not enough
to change the world
I have come that you may have life and life to the full

In our remembrance we know
silence is not enough
to bring peace to the world
Behold I make all things new

In our remembrance we know
silence is not enough
to change the minds of leaders
Your light must shine before people

In our remembrance we know
silence is not enough
to change the way we do things
This is what I command you: love one another

In our remembrance we know
silence is not enough
to convey the truth of war
Every tree is known by the fruit is bears.
The mouth speaks what the heart is full of.

In our remembrance we know
silence is not enough
but your words are
Come and follow me
