It was all surprisingly effective and moving, and had a delightful atmosphere.
But the finale was a screening of this YouTube Video from the HTB Leadership Conference this year, when Nicky Gumbel interviewed a direct descendent of Kaiser Willhelm II who is now a Lutheran Pastor - he is also of course a descendant of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. He asked for forgiveness on behalf of his great-great-grandfather, who, he said, was a believer and didn't want the war but he can't have had a deep personal relationship with Jesus because if he had he would have stood up to the generals a politicians. Deeply moving - do watch!
