The Eliot Church of Newton invites the public to an event to bring people of all faiths together in a time when world events have created rifts.
The church sent out the following announcement:
At a time when our air waves and social media are filled with fear mongering and misinformation; when our newspapers and 24 hour news cycles are filled with reports of the latest terrorist attack, we need more than ever to come together to pray for peace, understanding and unity among ALL people.
During this season of Advent, when Christians wait for the light to shine in this darkness, we invite you to an Interfaith Worship Service for Peace. It will be led by Rev. Susan Brecht, Rabbi Judy Kummer, and Saadia Husain Balock from the Islamic Center of Boston Wayland. We are all members of the Newton chapter of the Daughters of Abraham, a study group that promotes interfaith dialogue.
Please join us on Sunday, Dec. 13 at 10 a.m. at The Eliot Church, 474 Center St., Newton.
Peace, Salaam, Shalom,
Rev. Susan Brecht
