Clarksville, TN – Clarksville Area Ministerial Association and Trinity Episcopal Church will host an ecumenical memorial vigil with local churches at 6:00pm on Tuesday, October 10th, 2017 at Trinity Episcopal Church, 317 Franklin Street, Clarksville, TN.
All members of the community are invited to attend this service which will remember the victims of the Las Vegas, NV tragedy.
Readings, song, as well as a reciting of all the victim’s names are included in this ceremony.
Clergy will be available for one-on-one healing prayer, laying on hands, and words of comfort after the service.
The Clarksville Area Ministerial Association will stand together in common faith to mourn the lives lost in Las Vegas, NV. Representatives from area churches will be speaking and praying for the victims, as well as lifting up our own deep grief in the face of gun violence in our country, asking God for healing.
“Once again, we watch in agony as our brothers and sisters are shot down. Once again, we find ourselves reading another list of names, too large to even fathom. Once again, people of faith must band together to remember our common hope,” said the Rev. Meghan Holland, Rector of Trinity Episcopal Church.
“We gather in vigil not merely for solace in the face of a great tragedy, but also to bolster ourselves for action. So that we might be forces of love when we encounter hate, forces of life when we encounter death. It is a reminder that we are not alone in the face of darkness, but part of a beloved community of shared mission” said the Rev. Meghan Holland, Rector of Trinity Episcopal Church,” Rev. Holland stated.
