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.”

Prayer for the people of Beirut

Light of new hope

God of refuge,
hear our prayer
as we hold the people of Beirut
in our hearts at this time.
Fill us with compassion
and move us to reach out in love.

In your mercy,
bring comfort to those who mourn,
healing to those who are injured,
shelter to those who are homeless
sustenance to those who hunger.

Give strength to those who are working
to rebuild shattered lives,
and protect those who are vulnerable
especially in a time of coronavirus.

Lead us in your ways
so that together we may bring
the light of new hope
wherever there is destruction and despair.

We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
