The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace

Immanuel Baptist Church will be hosting a community event on Sunday, September 11, at 7:00 p.m., commemorating the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 events. The Immanuel Choir and Orchestra will present “The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace” by British composer Karl Jenkins. It features texts from Christianity, Judaism and Islam, as well as historic texts from India and modern texts from Japan and Britain. The music is accompanied by a silent video of footage from the preparations for war, the conflicts themselves, the aftermath, and the quest for peace. (As some of the texts and scenes are not appropriate for young children, childcare will be provided up to age 12.) People of all faiths and cultures are warmly invited to share this event, seeking understanding, respect and peace among all people.
