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
