United Church of Christ Resources

O God Tender and JustThis is a book that is both for and about the church.  It is for the church as a special volume commemorating the anniversary of the awful acts of violence that took place on September 11, 2001, when terrorists deliberatly crashed airplanes into the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington DC.  A third plane, apparently failing in an unknown mission of destruction, crashed in a Pennsylvania field.

This is also a book about the church and the faithful way it responds to crisis.  In the days, weeks, and months after September 11, literally thousands of people logged on to the United Church of Christ's website.

Although the voices and forms differed, these hundreds of postings consistently shared common themes deeply grounded in the faithful, biblical perspective of their writers: Care for those who hurt.  Hope for the future.  Seek justice, not vengeance. Be informed and be active. Exercise restraint. And trust in God.

This set of 3 resources commemorating September 11, 2001 includes

  • Book of reflections and responses after September 11, 2001
  • Biblical study on Psalm 23 and a liturgy
  • A Liturgy for O God, Tender and Just
