In solidarity with our neighbors around the world who are calling aloud from their balconies and rooftops across their neighborhoods and cities each evening, the N.C. Council of Churches invites faith communities to ring out their prayers at noon on May 7, National Day of Prayer, 2020.
We imagine churches rural and urban, large and small, joining in 5 minutes of “Joyful Noise” as a witness to our belief that these bells will once again call us to worship together in the same space. And, in the meantime, we wait hopefully for God’s grace-filled future.
We know all churches do not have bell towers or carillons, but perhaps there is a bell of some kind that can be called into service–handbells, organ bells, Sunday-school bells–and someone who would be willing to ring it.
