Interfaith Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration

This annual service, held on January 26 for the fourth year in a row, is one of the true gems of ministry in town. It centers on the children and regularly brings together families with Jewish, Christian and Muslim background. Just by singing together in the Interfaith Rainbow Children’s Choir, the youngsters become familiar with some of the expressions of all three faith traditions – a great way of overcoming religious separation and fragmentation that still characterize so much of our world. Thank you to all the participants, choristers and worship leaders alike, and also to the parents, who believe in the importance of events like these.
