The Interfaith Hunger Coalition extends a cordial invitation to all New Mexico faith communities to attend an interfaith World Food Day service on Sunday, October 16, 3:00-4:30 p.m. at First Unitarian Church, 3701 Carlisle Blvd. NE, Albuquerque, NM.
Join people of all faith traditions in commemorating Food Day. An interfaith service of prayer linking food, climate change, immigration and economic justice will feature scripture readings, reflections, music and dance from the Sikh, Baha’i, Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Native American and other communities.
The celebration will start with a prayer for the feast of Sukkot, led by Rabbi Min Kantrowitz. The prayer service will lead people to make a commitment to address hunger, climate change, immigration and economic justice through direct service or policy advocacy. The Sikh community of Albuquerque will provide Langar, a meal served to close the service.
Those who would like to be part of a pick-up choir led by David Poole or sacred dance group led by Keri Sutter for the service, please come at 1:30 p.m.on Oct. 16 to prepare. All are welcome to participate!
The event is co-sponsored by the New Mexico Interfaith Hunger Coalition and NM Interfaith Power and Light. For more information, contact Joan Brown, OSF, firstname.lastname@example.org or Carlos Navarro, email@example.com.
