The annual Community Interfaith Thanksgiving Service will be held Sunday, November 19, 3:00 p.m., at The Unitarian Church of Lincoln, 6300 A St, Lincoln. This service of gratitude is open to everyone, and all faiths are welcome and encouraged to attend. In a world that serves up daily reminders of what divides us, this service brings together people of all faiths, and reminds us of what binds us together in our shared expressions of gratitude and thanksgiving.
Clergy from many different faiths will participate, with this year’s featured speaker being Erik Servellon, Vice President of Operations and Development at the Tri-Faith Initiative in Omaha. The Tri-Faith Initiative brings together in permanent residency a synagogue, church, mosque, and interfaith center on one 38-acre campus in America’s heartland. From this intentionally diverse space in Omaha, they bridge divides among three faith communities, neighbors throughout our larger local community, and, increasingly, people across the U.S. and around the world.
