Decommissioning Liturgy for a robe

4,059

Published on

We "decommissioned" a choir robe first purchased in 1972 for the A Cappella Choir at Samford University. I thought it would be fun to write a "liturgy of decommission" and use it a choir alumni event on October 29, 2011 - Samford's Homecoming.
