Music for Meditation, to embrace a decade of healing since Sept. 11, 2001, will be presented Sunday by organist Jason Derrick in the Oxford-University United Methodist Church sanctuary, corner University Avenue and 10th Street. This music-only memorial meditation service is free and open to all.
A special morning service will serve as a tribute to emergency responders at New Prospect Baptist Church, 823 Highway 334. The 10:30 a.m. service will provide an opportunity for the community to show its support and appreciation to all of its emergency responders — fire and police officers as well as EMTs. The responders will be honored with a small gift and appreciation dinner following the service. (September 6, 2011)
