Interfaith Gratitude Service: Celebrating God’s Inclusive Love
November 15, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
All are welcome to attend this interfaith celebration of God’s inclusive love, highlighting both our shared values and the diverse ways we express our faith. By coming together as beloved children of God, we hope to make the world a better place for all.
The service is hosted by the Lake Oswego United Church of Christ, Congregation Beit Haverim, the Muslim Educational Trust, The Bahá’í Faith of Portland, and the Islamic Community of North American Bosniaks. We will gather together to celebrate our diversity, and the many things we share in common as people of God.
Featuring special guest speaker Willie Poinsette of Respond to Racism, our service will be led by Rabbi Alan Berg of Beit Haverim, and Rev. Jennie Ott of Lake Oswego United Church of Christ. Members of each faith community will help guide the service with readings, prayers, poetry and music.
Following the service, we will gather around a delightful spread of refreshments to get better acquainted in conversation. We invite you, your family, neighbors, and friends to join us.
Optional Donations: There will be an opportunity to provide financial support for Respond to Racism should you wish to do so.
