M-4 9/11 Service
We chose to celebrate the 10th anniversary of 9/11 together as a community of M-4 churches. That allowed each church to have full worship in our own tradition and then gather for a totally 9/11 focussed service. 8 clergy from the 4 churches gathered in robes and processed in together, led by an ecumenical choir. One priest from the Episcopal church gave witness as a mother to a daughter who worked in the World Trade Towers. To illustrate her role as a mother, she took off her stole, robe and clerical collar. It was powerful. Then she invited us all to turn to our neighbors and talk about what we still remember.
M-4 is such a gift to me!
