Thanksgiving is an opportunity to reflect on the gifts or needs that each person brings to this ACT Multi-faith Thanksgiving Service. Each of us has the human need to share together, in times of plenty or happiness and in times of trouble. We are blessed both by giving and in receiving. At various times in life, one will probably experience both sides of this condition. Together we create community by developing friendships in which we can trust each other, share our lives and build more meaningful, deeper lives. Our community grows stronger through our inter-connectedness and working together to solve problems.
There will be a table for anyone to bring information or cards about their gifts/needs, both individually, or as part of a congregation/group. We will learn about customs of a Friends Meeting during this service.
