The online Jesuit journal 'Thinking Faith' has some useful and thought-provoking articles connected with Remembrance and the First World War centenary in its latest issue.
'How ought war to be remembered in schools?' is the question David Aldridge asks in the journal Impact, published by the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain.

Most Sundays will find me, sitting with my family, at the 10am service, where I always appreciate coming before God with my faith community.
