Celestial Lands Liberal Religious Faith… and the occasional political musing.

Resources for Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day

Every year, I receive requests from ministers and worship associate teams from across the United States, and sometimes across religious denominations, asking if I will help them to plan a Memorial Day or a Vetebanner hanging 005ran’s Day worship service in their congregations.  Now, obviously I cannot directly aid all these various congregations in planning their worship directly (although many certainly ask me to try), but what I have done in the past is provide them links to some of my public writings on such issues, and to respond to direct questions they might have.

This year, instead of sending the same email over and over, I decided to put the links I usually send on a webpage, so that I can just direct worship teams and ministers to this page.  If you have questions, you can reply to this message and I will do my best to respond.

Here are some of my sermons and writings around Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day:
