Interfaith Service Day

Thursday, August 8th

8:00 am at the New Haven Green

Dear Friends,
Imagine the day:  You arrive on the New Haven Green at 8:00 a.m. on a cool August morning.  Around you gather dozens of strangers, youth, adults, Christians, Muslims, Jews, and others.  We form teams of ten including youth from Israel and Palestine.  We meet them and they tell us about their lives as we spend a few hours painting, or planting flowers, or cleaning a beach, or raising burial stones, or building a house.  We get to know one another, sharing stories and learning who we are, why we wear the clothes we wear or pray the prayers we pray.  We work, laugh, and relax together.  We return to the green and share a noon time meal.  We take a photo and in the morning news our neighbors read and see photographs showing that “We Are All In This Together.”  They see what we did together and we all feel a little safer, less fearful, and more at peace with the world.

Please join me for interfaith service day.
