In my estimation it is impossible for a worship service not to acknowledge in some way the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York City, Washington D.C. and rural Pennsylvania. The toughest part is doing so in an honest, reflective way that honors the dead, respects the living and is hopeful for the future of our world. I hope the following video accomplishes those three things. Charlie Pride and son Dion team up to cover Steve Wonder’s hit “Heaven Help Us All.” The video sets up with the otherwise normal aspects of that tragic Tuesday, followed by the shocking intrusion of terror into our lives.
This video is available for use in worship for $15 at sacredsegues.com. The ELCA website also offers some good printed resources for worship on September 11. Check it out.
