Guest Musicians - Interfaith Connection Wedenesday Night Service
The Interfaith Connection service is held Wednesday evenings and is led by Rev. Dave Lyman and the Interfaith team. In this time of polarization and issues, our intention is to build respect and peace among the world faith traditions by learning the truths that lie beneath the uniqueness.
"Until there's peace among the world's religions,
there will never be peace on earth."
See the brother and sister in your life as we celebrate life, we celebrate joy, and we celebrate the oneness of all by studying the faith traditions. Using a short lesson, wondrous music, and deep meditation we pay homage to Mahatma Gandhi who said, “A friendly study of the world’s religions is a sacred duty.”
