Commemorating the Dropping of the First Atomic Bomb on Hiroshima

This year I will be leading the service to commemorate the dropping of the first atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima.  Last year I made a little video about this I hope you will enjoy watching it and that you too will take a moment to remember this tragic event and pray it never happens again.  The fear of it happening again is greater in me now than at any other time in my life, and yes it is related to the person occupying the post as president of the US.  But watch the video it isn’t quite so political.
