Ecumenical Thanksgiving Service Tuesday, November 25 at 5:30 pm

Island Pastors Offer Ecumenical Thanksgiving Service – St. Saviour’s, Tuesday, November 25, 5:30 pm
Sponsored by MDI Clergy Association and Maine Sea Coast Mission
Thanksgiving is a time when we remember the many blessings in our lives, and a group of MDI pastors are sponsoring an ecumenical service of scripture, prayer, hymns, and thanksgiving. The service is a collaboration among clergy from several different congregations, and is intended as an opportunity for the whole community to gather across the lines of individual denominations and traditions. The Maine Seacoast Mission is sponsoring the service, along with the MDI Clergy Association. The Rev. Jane Cornman of The Episcopal Parish of St. Mary & St. Jude will be preaching. Singing will be accompanied by Robin Ann Barron of Bar Harbor Congregational Church at the organ. The Rev. Rob Benson of Bar Harbor Congregational Church, the Rev. Suzanne Cole of The Church of Our Father in Hulls Cove, The Rev. Tim Fleck of St. Saviour’s Episcopal Church, Bar Harbor and the Episcopal Parish of St. Andrew & St. John, Southwest Harbor, and The Rev. Dr. Deborah Jenks of the United Church of Christ of Northeast Harbor and Seal Harbor, will also be participating. The Rev. Scott Planting, President of the Maine Seacoast Mission, says, “Thanksgiving is a holiday that does not belong to any one religion or tradition, so it is an excellent opportunity for this sort of shared community service. We hope that it may have something to offer every person of faith, no matter their background.” The MDI Clergy Association has developed over the past two years from an informal gathering of island pastors invited to meet for lunch regularly by Rev. Planting. The group discusses and coordinates response to island-wide issues as well as supporting one another in ministry. Last January, the group coordinated the ecumenical Martin Luther King Day celebration at the Mission.
