The Katonah United Methodist Church, in partnership with Frances Schutta, a Native-American religious practitioner, will hold its annual interfaith service of Thanksgiving on Thanksgiving Day. This service draws upon the symbolism and rituals of Native Americans in a deeply moving way that helps us celebrate the many ways in which the natural world enriches our lives. Attendees are encouraged to bring a symbol of something for which they are grateful and be prepared to say a few words about it. What better way to prepare for our national holiday of gratitude.
Nina Kellogg of Katonah has attended the service in past years. She says, “I love the service because it unifies us all, regardless of our faith background. Fran Schutta does a fabulous job helping us find the deepest meaning of the holiday. She creates such a welcoming atmosphere that you instantly feel that you’re home. So put the turkey in the oven and come on over.”
