Ecumenical Thanksgiving Celebration Nov. 19

For the past 15 years, people from dozens of faiths have gathered at Temple Kol Emeth in Marietta to celebrate Thanksgiving by sharing uplifting messages, singing and laughing together, and supporting interfaith charities. In 2020, this unifying event will be online and include an online chat to share your feelings and thoughts. This year’s theme, “Act Now: Silence Is Not An Option,” is the inspiration for messages from various religious and community leaders about speaking up for compassion and humanity, a common value of people of all faiths. The event will spotlight The National Civil Rights Museum, which will be the recipient of donations to the Ecumenical Thanksgiving Give-A-Gobble program. Thursday, Nov. 19, for this one-of-a-kind 16th annual Ecumenical Thanksgiving Celebration organized by twenty faith-based groups in the Cobb, Fulton, and Cherokee counties—because people of faith need to stand together and serve others now more than ever. Online at 6:30 p.m. for musical performances, program begins at 7. Visit the Facebook page for the live link here. Donations for the Give-a-Gobble program to benefit The National Civil Rights Museum can be made by clicking
