130 Ribbons

Brive-la-Gaillarde Collégiale St. Martin-de-BriveI am very grateful for the opportunity (and permission) to create this “hommage” of 130 purple ribbons to the 130 victims of the atrocities in Paris (November 13, 2015). We also held a prayer vigil, together with other church leaders, inside the church one week after the killings. It was a touching service. For me it was the first opportunity to lead a song in such a building, parts of which date back to the 12th century.

I live just across the street from this magnificent church called the Collégiale de St. Martin-de-Brive. Below are some of our best pictures of it taken from our window.
