‘Dunkirk Moment’ for Church

The 70th anniversary of the battle for Dunkirk falls as I write.

The battle took place between May 26 and June 4 1940. King George VI was a fragile man who will be remembered for two things from those dark days: first, he read a few lines from a poem beginning “I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year” in his Christmas address in 1939 and secondly he called the nation to a day of prayer, during the Dunkirk crisis and churches were full to overflowing. The rest is history.
