Harmony & Hope Tree Ceremony: Amazing Grace will be the backdrop for the Harmony & Hope Tree Ceremony. We invite you to write a memory of a loved one or a hope or prayer for the future on the fabric squares provided and attach to the tree at the front of the church. The tree will later be planted on the grounds of First Church and will continue to thrive as a living memory of loved ones who have been murdered. You are welcome to visit the tree at any time. The fabric squares will live on in a future art project—turning them into a quilt or styled into a prayer flag to be displayed as public art in the community.
