An Interfaith Thanksgiving Service was held November 15, 2012 at Plymouth United Church of Christ. The program for the evening was “From Seeds of Love, Acceptance, and Respect To a Harvest of Thanksgiving” with clergy and laypeople of the Muslim, Jewish, Christian, and Buddhist faiths participating. Readings were given in original languages followed by a short explanation in English.
The Spring Interfaith Dialogue Council sponsors the Thanksgiving Service yearly on the Thursday before Thanksgiving. We also sponsor dinner dialogues in the spring, eating together to share religious views in an accepting atmosphere. Our website is www.spinginterfaith.org.
