This is our 11th year of offering an Interfaith Celebration at The Watermark at 3030 Park coordinated by our resident Lee Berentsen. This extremely popular program was started in 2007 in an effort to offer a program across all religious faiths and blending it with Thanksgiving. This year’s topic was forgiveness. Across all religions, forgiveness and gratitude are taught to help us control negative emotions and actions. When we hold on to hurt, pain, resentment, and anger it harms us far more than it harms the offender. This is true for individuals, communities, and nations! Forgiveness frees us to live in the present. It is a meaningful topic for Thanksgiving.
Our presenters were Reverend David Rowe of Greenfield Hill Congregational Church, Rabbi Jim Prosnit of Congregation B’nai Israel, Brother Hani, and Father Charles Allen, University Chaplain and Special Assistant to the President at Fairfield University.
It has become a wonderful program which so many have enjoyed over the years!
