An Interfaith Thanksgiving Service is planned for 7 p.m. tonight at Circular Congregational Church. Open to all, the event is sponsored by the Christian-Jewish Council of Greater Charleston.
The service will feature clergy from six religious denominations. On the dais will be the Rev. Danny Massie of First (Scots) Presbyterian Church; Fr. James Parker, retired priest of Holy Spirit Catholic Church; Rabbi Adam Rosenbaum of the Conservative Synagogue Emanu-El; and Fr. Dow Sanderson of the Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion.
The Rev. Joseph Darby, of Morris Brown AME Church, will give the invocation, and Rabbi Stephanie Alexander of the Reform Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim Synagogue will deliver the main message.
The Christian-Jewish Council, founded in 1979, "seeks to build bridges of understanding to promote sensitivity, tolerance, respect and fellowship among faith groups," according to its mission statement.
Earlier this month, it presented a Three Clergy Panel to discuss the issue of social justice from a Christian perspective.
