An Interfaith Service of Gratitude: Sustainable Abundance
Congregation Beit Haverim, the Lake Oswego United Church of Christ, the Bahia community, the Bosniaks Educational Trust and other local congregations invite the wider community to a worship service in celebration of the gift of the Earth and our human responsibility for its just stewardship.
Participants are invited to reﬂect on our commitments to maintaining the integrity of creation and ensuring that its bounty be shared among all peoples, including future generations. The service will close with an opportunity for worshippers to make a personal pledge to concrete actions.
Through readings, Scripture, music, and personal testimonies, the gathered community will recognize the insights of its many and varied rich religious traditions regarding the blessings of the created world. The service will be led by Rabbi Alan Berg of Congregation Beit Haverim and Reverend Jennie Ott of Lake Oswego United Church of Christ.
Following the service, those in attendance will be invited to a reception of pies, baklava, beverages and warm conversation. All are welcome.
