The following resources for remembering 9/11 have been compiled by our friends at the National Religious Campaign Against Torture:
In one month, our country will mark the 10th anniversary of the attacks on our nation on 9/11. Many denominations, faith groups and religious organizations have prepared materials for use in community gatherings and worship services in congregations – click here for links to those resources. You will also find pastoral care materials and age appropriate resources for children.
The National Religious Campaign Against Torture has prepared a litany appropriate for interfaith gatherings or community prayer services. It can also be incorporated into regularly scheduled worship in congregations. We hope you will consider urging the leadership of your congregation to use the litany, as well as those planning interfaith and community gatherings. Go to the litany.
We remember the pain and tragedy of September 11, 2001 and pray for God’s peace in the years ahead.
The NC Council of Churches has also developed numerous resources and statements that reflect our commitment to peacemaking:
