"Where Memory Presses Green Land"
Rev. Steven Protzman
For Memorial Day weekend, FPC will be joining the Unitarian Universalist Church of Kent, Ohio at their service!
In his poem "Silenced Cries" James Coburn writes about the 1921 Tulsa Massacre and the racially motivated destruction of the Greenwood area, known as "Black Wall Street". He says " What do I know but clouds of smoke once rose where memory presses green land." On this, the 100th anniversary of the massacre, we will tell the rarely heard story of this event and reflect on the work we are called to do to end racism in our country.
We will be guests at the Kent, Ohio congregation, so there will be some differences from our regular service. UUCK opens their doors at 9:45 for their 10am service, requires your name as part of their waiting room process but will help you change your screen name like we do, has breakout groups before the service to chat, and uses the chat box for sharing joys and sorrows. We will not be posting an order of service, but will post an annoucements document.
