Thank you to all who attended our 17th Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Celebration on Monday, November 21st! Held at Central Reformed Church, the evening included songs and reflections centered on the theme “Coming Together: Welcoming All.” Facing a divisive climate in our nation today, the evening was an important reminder the strength we have when we come together. As our keynote speaker, Faye Richardson-Green from Partners for a Racism-Free Community, reminded us – in the words of James Baldwin: “Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” Let us continue to face the challenges ahead of us together, united as an interfaith community.
