As we begin the most significant CELEBRATION of EASTER. I am appalled as a Christian. As well as most Veterans are. Whether one fell out to the right or left on Church parade. Or stood at ease in the atheist (non Believer) area. The majority of NATO troops are Christian.

It really upsets me here in the UK that all Chocolate products no matter what brand. Do not have the word EASTER  on the boxes. The Governments says this is done so as not to offend believers of ISLAM. Well it is reverse persecution in that I am deeply offended as a Christian/

Thus endeth the lesson. I remember this Sermon or pat thereof from my days on Church Parades at Easter.

Jesus Washes His Disciples’ Feet John13.1-15
It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. The evening meal was in progress, and the devil had already prompted Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus. Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.
He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?” Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.” “No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.” “Then, Lord,” Simon Peter replied, “not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!” Jesus answered, “Those who have had a bath need only to wash their feet; their whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you.” For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.
When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them.“You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet.
I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.

May our Lord God in Heaven protect our soldiers and their families. Amen

Nil Sine Labore
