Today is Holocaust Memorial Day. With it falling on a Sunday this year I hope that across the world those who will be in Church will find a moment to reflect upon both the horrors of the Holocaust and also  the causes of a racism that to the murder of over six million Jewish people across Europe.

Today I stood in the Cathedral in Inverness as we prepared to end a responsibility we have
undertaken here for four years.

On the Centenary of the outbreak of WW1 a candle had been lit in the Parish Church in Inverness
that candle was then escorted across the river to the Cathedral and we have kept a candle burning
until this weekend, the remembrance of the ending of the war.
