An Ecumenical Service Celebrates Unity and Diversity
It would seem to make sense that different groups would gather together for one Thanksgiving service. The Southern Tier had a unique local church event that did just that.
The idea of an ecumenical church service, one where different churches are represented, came to life tonight.
The Endwell ecumenical Thanksgiving service took place at Holy Family Roman Catholic Church. Tts celebrants were Presbyterian and Methodist.
Organizers say the Thanksgiving service seemed to be the right time to try this idea. Other churches represented tonight included Our Savior Lutheran Church, Church of the Holy Family and Church of Christ in Christian Union. The theme was one that celebrated diversity and unity rooted in the love for God.
