Peace…and Remembering the Fallen
A Visual Prayer
Comprised of 1000 cranes, the intention is to create and install a mobile in the sanctuary as a visual prayer to help folk deal with feelings of sorrow and helplessness in the face of the seemingly endless mass killings in the U.S.A., and to pray for their end.
Each white crane, symbolic of multiple prayers, will ascend upwards into the west tower, rising as a petition to God. One thought is to have 90- plus red cranes within the 1000 cranes – one for each mass killing – as a way to remember each senseless act of violence leading to the tragedy of innocent lives lost. Hence one suggested title, “Peace, and Remembering the Fallen.”
An enthusiastic group has begun folding cranes, and additional participants would be very welcome. Instruction is readily available. Also, ideas for the shape of the mobile are wanted. All (designers, constructors, creatives) are invited into this prayer process as an enacted witness to the Prince of Peace.
Any questions? Please call the church office.
