Tribute to 9/11 & Labyrinth Peace Walk

This assemblage is titled "As We Forgive", a tribute to 9/11 that I did a few years ago. Underneath it is The Lord's Prayer in Arabic that our priest, Fr. Bill, brought back from Saudi Arabia, where he had gone for 6 weeks about 6 - 8 years ago.

The Episcopal Church and other religious leaders are planning interfaith events to mark the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks when almost 3,000 people perished after hijacked planes slammed into the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and a field in Shanksville, PA.

The Executive Council, at its June meeting, invited all Episcopal communities "to open their doors" during the Sept. 10-11 weekend to commemorate the anniversary "with acts of prayer & remembrance, service, creativity, interfaith cooperation, education, community building, & fellowship, offering our institutions as active, accessible sites of healing for our local communities."

In remembering the upcoming 10th anniversary of the tragedy of the events from September 11, 2001, and with prayers for peace, Christ Episcopal Church, Delavan, WI will be hosting a PEACE WALK ON THE LABYRINTH, in the Chapel on Sunday, 9/11.

Come anytime between 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. and walk our labyrinth, meditate, and offer prayers for the state of the whole world. ALL ARE WELCOME!
