Remember, Reconcile, Relate: 15th Anniversary of 9-11

Remember, Reconcile, Relate:  15th Anniversary of 9-11 will be recognized at the Ebster Pavilion, 404 W. Trinity, downtown Decatur, on September 11 afternoon with Multicultural Pot Luck Meal and an Open Interfaith Service.

The city-wide multicultural, interfaith potluck will begin at 3 p.m.; all surrounding communities are warmly invited.   

At 4:00 an interfaith service will focus on Remember, Reconcile, and Relate.  A broad coalition of local citizens planned this event, including Catholics, Jews, Muslims, and Protestants.  Area musical groups have been invited to offer their voices, including the Charles Drew School Chorus. 

5:00, Clean the grounds and clear the facility.

 

Pastor James Brewer-Calvert is one of many people of faith who serve on the 15th Anniversary of 9-11 planning team.  Brewer-Calvert said, “We are hoping for a solid turnout from our many neighbors from across the city.  That Sunday, record the fourth quarter of the Falcons game and show up!  Bring a favorite, simple dish to share, a lawn chair if you like, and an open mind and heart.  Our prayer is that this event will foster new relationships as well as provide room for us to grieve and remember those who gave their lives, including the police, firefighters, and EMTs who went into danger so that others could get out to safety.   We are intentional about being interfaith and multicultural because people from all walks either died on 9-11 or have been affected.  We are all implicated; we all suffer; and more than ever we need one another for healing and moving forward with grace.”
