The Rising - Remembering 9/11
A weekend retreat, 17th - 19th September 2021
Most of us will remember where we were on September 11th 2001 and this September sees the 20th anniversary of the attacks on the Twin Towers and Pentagon in the USA.
That cataclysmic event changed the course of history, and continues to affect the political, economic and religious life of the world even today. Although many reacted angrily and without serious reflection, some went away and spent time deeply considering just how humanity had come to this point. The American singer/ songwriter Bruce Springsteen did just that and a year later produced his response via an Album of music called "The Rising". Eleven months of reflection and creativity had produced songs about death, loss, love, joy, faith, empathy and resurrection. Though none of his songs are explicitly religious, they do reveal a deep thoughtfulness and spirituality.
Anglican priest and Holland House trustee, Peter Knight, will lead us through an exploration of The Rising songs, reflecting on how they relate to the experience of New Yorkers and the world, twenty years ago, and how they speak to the depths of our humanity, today.
