Bible Story for the Children:
A Time To Mourn
I invite you to come together tomorrow at noon. If you are able and if you are willing, please gather in front of St Stephen’s, wearing masks and maintaining appropriate spatial distancing. At noon our bell will ring 6 times for the 6 minutes George Floyd was conscious under the police officer’s knee, pleading for his life. Then, we will switch and toll the bell to mark the death of 100,000 people in the U.S. from COVID-19. After the bell tolling, our organist, Susan Lohnas, will play music of lament with all church windows open. That’s it. Then we leave in silence.
