Answering the Call

A generally quiet remembrance here of the 9/11 Terror Attacks, two miles from the Twin Towers.

But there were a few more people coming into church and a larger than usual crowd attending the Friday service. A novelty this year, provided by our Associate Rector were little flash tattoos of a feather. These were offered by a group of widows and orphans of NY firefighters and police who died in the disaster or who succumbed to ailments stemming from the attacks.

We put a little sign out front of the church and a basket of the tattoos inside the door and were surprised to find people coming in to snatch them up. It’s touching that folks want visible symbols of their thoughts and feelings. And good news for followers of a sacramental religion. —J. Douglas Ousley
