Interfaith Friends of Potter's Field
Christ Jesus . . . humbled himself,
and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him . . .|
Excerpt from Phillippians 2:5-11.
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
Sharing Reflections were Lewis Haggins' brother, Brock Haggins; Anthony Williams, who with Lewis Haggins co-founded Picture The Homeless (PTH), and Charles Heck, a member of the PTH Potter's Field Campaign group headed by William Burnett (who did the Scripture Reading Phillipians 2:5-11). Lewis Haggins' mother, Mrs. Geraldine Haggins, also participated in the service.
The graphic pen sketch of the memorial service has been added here by the webmaster as has its caption, an excerpt from the Scripture Reading Phillipians 2:5-11.
The words and musicial score of the hymn "Amazing Grace" were on the reverse side of the memorial service printed program and have been replicated as this web page's image background. It was sung by participants, without accompaniment, near the end of the memorial service.
Amazing Grace, played on bagpipes, has become a standard at correction, police and fire department funerals. For a hauntingly beautiful rendition by the Pipe and Concert Bands of the US Air Force Reserve Band (3:46 minutes, 3.5 Mbs), click the following underlined title of the hymn: Amazing Grace.
