Sunday is the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Excellent resources from Disciples and ecumenical partners are available, including a prayer of remembrance and healing from General Minister and President Sharon E. Watkins. Chalice Press is offering a free downloadable sample from Strike Terror No More: Theology, Ethics, and the New War, edited by Jon L. Berquist. For those leading worship, group discussions, and community events, check out "9/11 Plus 10: Between Memory and Hope," a collection of resources on the United Church of Christ website.
Several Disciples leaders are participating in Shoulder to Shoulder, an interreligious event in New York City on September 8.
