SERVICE OF LAMENT AND HEALING
On Sunday, September 6, GCC will host a Service of Lament and Healing at 10am, intended to lift up essential workers in honor of Labor Day and to grieve and remember those who have died of the CO-VID 19 virus and people of color who have been victims of violence at the hands of police and others. The liturgy includes scripture from Psalms and Romans and an excerpt from Joanna Macy’s book “Pass It On: Five Stories That Can Change the World”. Music under the direction of Peter Amidon includes and original composition by Bill Harley and arranged by Peter Amidon, “Steal Way”, and “There Is a Balm in Gilead” both African American spirituals, a violin aire played by Fred Breunig. as well as a recording of Mahalia Jackson singing “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands” and a virtual orchestra of violins playing “Lift Every Voice and Sing”, in memory of young violinist Elijah McClain who was shot by police in front of his own home. Tony and and Margaret Dale Barrand assist with the service, Margaret Dale reading the children’s story, “Big Momma Makes the World” by Phyllis Root. Rev Dr Lise Sparrow offers prayers for lament and words of comfort.
