Collections for Difficult Times

  • Ecological Disasters: Worship Resources to help respond liturgically to ecological disasters such as the Gulf oil spill, hurricane Katrina, the Indian Ocean tsanami of 2004, and global warming. 
  • Making Sense of Tough Economic Times: the challenges of difficult economic times are felt deeply and viscerally within our communities, yet all too often the topic of money is rarely addressed in congregations. These resources model a different approach.
  • Responses to 9/11: a prayer composed on the seventh anniversary of the attacks of September 11th, 2001, and a link to archived materials created in the immediate aftermath of the deadliest terrorist attack in United States history.
  • Responses to the Boston Marathon Bombing Tragedy (PDF, 13 pages): this collection of prayers, meditations, and readings is in response to the Boston Marathon tragedy that occurred on April 15, 2013. 

Historical Collections

  • The Inauguration of President Barack Obama: the Inauguration of the United States' 44th President was historic on many levels, and the American Folk Life Center of the Library of Congress issued an invitation to religious communities to submit sermons, prayers, and other materials for their collection. We did the same.
  • Margaret Fuller Bicentennial: To help celebrate the bicentennial of the birth of Margaret Fuller a collection of worship materials has been assembled.
