Memorial candlelight service in Washington DC to remember Pulse in Orlando one year ago

Tonight, Pride Fund to End Gun Violence sponsored a memorial for victims of the attack on the Pulse disco one year ago today, at Dupont Circle in Washington DC.

Here is my raw video

Easter Sunday service at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC

For the first time ever, I attended the Easter Sunday Sunrise Service sponsored by Capital Church in McLean VA today at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC.  In 2014, I had attended a service at Arlington Cemetery and filmed it.  But this service lasting about 70 minutes, was “contemporary” in style.

Here is a list of clips.

1  (birds, while waiting for Uber, which did come right away;  Metro wasn’t open yet)

2  The hymn “He’s Alive” reminded me of a Sunday night service in August 1979 at the old MCC Dallas (long before the Cathedral of Hope got built in Dallas) where a young man sung this with his guitar and a woman, paralyzed, got up and walked.  I actually saw this.

3  “Praise the Lord”







At the end, there was an evangelical appeal to people to raise their hands as a sign of personal commitment to Christ, in public.  This is more common at evangelical services.
