Official Church Statement: Remembering 9/11

It would be remise of me as the leader of the church if I did not mention that 15 years ago the world stood still, shocked and shaken by what was happening in the United Sates of America in the city of New York. It is important that we mark the 15th anniversary of the September 11 attacks on the world trade centre in New York because the worldwide consequences of that day have been immense and have changed our lives forever. The world has not been the same since, we have not know peace since and many lives have been taken in the pursuit of peace since that fateful day.
 
Here we stand on the anniversary of the day when the world changed and imploded, here we stand remembering those that have gone on to a better life. Here we stand people of faith, and religion praying that the world can find a way to make sure that this kind of tragedy would never happen again, but all to often we have found that hate and suffering and pain and evil have won the day. However as people of faith let us gird our faith about us and remember those that have fallen and never forget them and why they fell and as long as we remember why they fell we shall overcome. Since September the 11th 2001 I think there has been bit of New York in all of us so that no matter what happens, with faith we can be stronger and united, and together we can overcome all evils. We will always remember.
