Today Poland grieves, not only the death of their President ,but 95 other people.
The president had been flying to Russia along with his wife, the heads of the army and navy, MPs and senior historians to mark 70 years since Soviet forces massacred more than 20,000 Poles near Katyn.
We see this Public Grief on TV as Poland begins 6 days of Official Mourning, and Russia holds a Day of Mourning today. We pray for Poland, and also for those Poles well known in Filey serving us every day, who will be feeling far from home and family.
This lovely bead necklace was designed and made by a much loved Filey wife and daughter who died in a Motor Cycle accident last summer in Germany. Her Art will be just one of the legacies she has left for the world to enjoy.
We pray for all who mourn, that they will be comforted,
In the name of Jesus
