Native American Interfaith Thanksgiving Service

The Katonah United Methodist Church, in partnership with Frances Schutta, a Native-American religion practitioner, will hold its annual Interfaith Service of Thanksgiving on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 28, at 10:00 am. This service draws upon the symbolism and rituals of Native Americans in a deeply moving way that helps us celebrate the many ways in which the natural world enriches our lives. People of all faith traditions are welcome to participate in this interfaith service. Attendees are encouraged to bring a symbol of something for which they are grateful and be prepared to say a few words about it. What better way to prepare for our national holiday of gratitude?

Bob Lukey of Somers has attended the service in past years. He says, “This service means a great deal to me. It helps me focus on the most important aspects of my life so I can really get in touch with the way God has blessed me. This is particularly helpful right now when we’re being forced to move out of our home due to a serious mold condition.”

For additional information, call the church at (914) 232-4094 or visit the website at http://www.katonahumc.wordpress.com. The church is located at 5 Bedford Road.
