Sixth Annual Dothan Interfaith Thanksgiving Service
November 27, 2013
On Wednesday evening November 27th, Dothan’s sixth annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Service was celebrated at First United Methodist Church.
The local faith community’s congregations participating in the service included: Buddhist, Presbyterian, United Methodist, Catholic, Jewish, Hindu, and Muslim.
Mayor Mike Schmitz welcomed the large audience of several hundred attendees, then each congregation’s leader read from his/her faith tradition’s sacred texts. The service concluded with a community offering, collecting donations for the Wiregrass United Way Food Bank.
We then enjoyed a warm and wonderful “oneg” coffee/dessert hour.
This was an awesome event; the church’s sanctuary was filled with music, words of respect and inclusion, as well as a celebration of our community’s differences and commonalities.
