For Christmas this year, we have added doves to our Christmas trees in the sanctuary. Each dove is a symbol of our prayer, our hope, and our remembering.
Some doves bear the names of people who are suffering from this pandemic: Those who have died from the virus, those struggling with the virus right now, and those who are out of work due to the economic impact of the pandemic.
Other doves bear the names of the humble heroes who continue to put themselves in harms way to make sure the rest of us are OK during this difficult time: medical personnel, first responders and essential workers.
Here are the names submitted by members of our community to be remembered:
George W Hunkele
Teresa E Frees
Nurses of The Cleveland Clinic
Diane Deverau Long
Cherie La Pelusa
