AM's Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Gathering
Undivided in Faith
Tuesday, November 22nd at 7:00 p.m.
Bethlehem Baptist Church
4818 E. Portland Avenue | Tacoma, WA 98404
For more than a quarter of a century, this annual Thanksgiving gathering has brought together people of many faith traditions. Join us as we come together in peace and community at Thanksgiving to explore and reflect upon gratitude and being “undivided in faith.” Now, more than ever, it’s important for people of all faiths to come together to be one community…undivided. Let’s pack the house!
The service will include choirs and participants from the Bahá’í, Buddhist, Roman Catholic, Center for Spiritual Living, Jewish, Muslim, Protestant, Sufi, and Unitarian Universalist faith traditions.
A reception and fellowship time will follow the service.

Thanksgiving Interfaith Choir…Back by Popular Demand!
This interfaith choir is open to all participants who would like to gather the day of the event, quickly practice and learn the song, and then sing at the Thanksgiving Gathering with friends, new and old! Plan to arrive at 6:00 for a run-through of the song as an interfaith choir. No need to sign up or RSVP. Just show up the night of the event at 6:00 for a quick practice ahead of the service!
This year’s song selection is the South African Freedom Song “We Are Walking” (also known as “Siyahamba” or “Caminando”). The song will be sung in English, Swahili, and Spanish, a quick learn for those of you that will be singing it for the first time the night of the event. Feel free to share with members of your congregations/faith traditions that might be interested in participating in the choir.
You may listen to the song to help learn the tune and the various languages: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_am5crjgCCE. Click here to review lyrics in all three languages.
