“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid." – John 14:27
Resources for remembering the tenth anniversary of 9/11.
September 11, 2011 will mark ten years since the tragedy of 9/11. This event took the lives of many and shook the consciousness of our nation and world. This site is intended to be a repository of documents and resources for reflection, worship, and education to assist churches in marking the 9/11 anniversary this year. Many of the resources are UCC, but some are posted from ecumenical and interfaith partners. As you use these resources to create safe and worshipful space to mark 9/11, we hope these resources prove helpful for meeting people wherever they are along the journey between memory and hope.
New resources will be added as they become available. For sources outside the United Church of Christ: please note that not all resources listed on the following links have been reviewed, so please select according to your needs.
