Thank you to everyone who supported The Secret City via our last Indiegogo campaign ever. We raised $27,090!
We are now on summer vacation, but here’s a recap of the last service of the season in NYC. We celebrated CHILDHOOD on June 30th.
The Cultural Calendar was read by Eric Powel Holm.
We looked at miniature dioramas in matchboxes by Bridget and Rita Carpenter.
We also looked at the drawings we each made on construction paper with crayons before service.
We enjoyed a taste of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
We heard a song from Oded Gross: Mama Never Let Me Be a Cowboy Among Other Things that Start with Cow.
We watched Shakedown Dance Collective dance to Ain’t No Thing.
Charlotte Booker read The Thing I Miss Most About Being a Child, a poem she crafted that day from our answers to the question “what do you miss most about being a child.”
Chris Wells read a story: Where I Grew Up. There were many references to shag carpets.
Sisters Leah Coloff, on cello, and Rachel Coloff, on vocals, offered a song called Outfits.
The Secret City Choir closed service with a touching cover of Ooh Child .
