A Thanksgiving to Fill the Spirit

Interfaith worship service combines the values of democracy, freedom and pluralism.

On the evening before Thanksgiving, my synagogue, Congregation Eilat in Mission Viejo, always gets together with a neighboring church, Shepherd of the Hills United Methodist, for an interfaith service. What is remarkable about this joint venture, and other pre-Thanksgiving services like it throughout the United States, is the fact that Jews and Christians can pray together under one roof. My parents entered a church only for a neighbor's wedding, funeral or other life-cycle event. On those rare occasions, they were invited guests, not participants.
