Remember Our Slogans:

We are all in this together
We do not need to agree on everything to work together for justice and peace.
We will not let the perfect become the enemy of the good.
Humor doth the heart like good medicine

Why Interfaith Service?
Interfaith service addresses one of the greatest challenges facing our communities: Diversity. Who are these Jews, these Christians, these Muslims, these aliens in our midst from other lands and religions? Well, let’s get to know them. Because we are in fact “All In This Together”, we must actively seek ways of working and being together, building the bridges necessary for a diverse and wonderful community. God did not make us a single people of one language, one skin color, one size, one religion. God made us diverse. And because we are diverse, interesting, complex and wonderful, we at times get confused and offend one another. We need time together to learn and grow as a community that enjoys and respects the differences among our peoples.
