Home | News | Ribbons of Remembrance at Dunaway’s Chapel UMC

Nearly seven months have passed since The United Methodist Church at Dunaway’s Chapel began hanging ribbons of remembrance of those lives lost due to COVID-19 in front of the chapel. The COVID-19 Memorial continues to grow and the members of the community who have lost loved ones to COVID-19 are invited to share in the memorial.

Each piece of fabric strip is a way of remembering the deaths in Tennessee, each represent a person… a spouse, a parent, a child, friend, or neighbor.

This week, Tennessee will see it’s 2, 884 deaths attributed to COVID-19…884 devastated families whose season of mourning seemingly never ends. Dunaway’s Chapel wishes to let you know that these 2, 884 lives are not being forgotten.

If you have lost a friend or loved one to COVID-19, you are invited to share their name here as a way to signify their life mattered.

The laity of Dunaway’s Chapel extends this invitation to one and all, living out the example of Jesus’ extravagant welcome and radical love. #seeallthepeople

Yours in Christ service,
Reverend James H. Overcast
