Cranes of peace

100_2868On August 9, Ridgewood Presbyterian Church, Ridgewood, N.Y., observed Hiroshima Day with a special morning worship service. As a response to the Word, the story of Sadako Sasaki was told. The worshipers then all folded 100 paper cranes [PDF]. At the end of the service when the peace of Christ was passed, the worshipers took the cranes outside and hung them on our iron fence.  All ages participated and the fence became a little less threatening with all of the colorful cranes flying in the breeze.
