Ten years ago the unthinkable happened – our homeland was attacked. This year, September 11 is a Sunday and so it is natural that there would be questions about what churches should do to commemorate this event. Nothing? Patriotic Services? Prayer Times?
1) Tell us about what your church is doing.
2) Tell us what you think churches should or should not be doing.
3) Discuss the Christian’s response to Islam and to Muslims. We’ve had a couple of good posts on the issue the last couple of days. Somehow, we need to stand as a nation against Islamic terrorism while also loving Muslims and not treating them individually like the enemy.
4) What about the celebrations in NYC in which Mayor Bloomberg has prohibited any clergy from official participation? How about the interfaith prayer service that included no evangelicals? Should we be offended or should we be glad for the separation of church and state?
This is undoubtedly an emotional topic and passion may run high. Let’s play nice, boys and girls.
What should Christians and the Church do about the commemoration of the tenth year anniversary of 9/11?
