Boston churches honor September 11 anniversary

On Sunday morning, September 11, Boston marked the tenth anniversary of the “9/11” attacks with an interfaith, multi-congregation service in Copley Square, arranged by the senior clergy and musicians of the Back Bay churches.

More than a thousand people, standing in flawless sunshine, were swept into the spirit of the occasion by the opening hymn, “God of Our People,” which includes the lines, “Your love and faith within our hearts increase; /With bounteous goodness nourish us in peace.” The hearty singing was followed by the 23rd Psalm, spoken in unison, and by readings of nine versions of the Golden Rule.
