TOC H

Post by BRIARTOC » Fri Dec 11, 2009 2:38 pm

Toc H began in 1915 during the First World War in Belgium. The Rev. Philip "Tubby" Clayton, an Australian born army chaplain, established a rest and recreation centre near the battle lines. Its purpose was to provide basic comforts and refuge for the young men going to and from the front lines; a place to refresh the body and cheer the soul, where rank played no part.

TOC H is still alive today. Still promoting those same values.
For all the poeple involved, and to all the troops away from their families and loved ones at this time. please spend a moment in your prayers.

Where there is hatred, let us bring love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is sadness, joy; And where there is darkness, let us bring light.
AMEN
