This year's interfaith Thanksgiving service, organized by the Spokane Interfaith Council, will focus on “Giving Thanks for our Differences.”

The program will be at 10 a.m. on Thanksgiving day (Nov. 22) at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Spokane.

Baldev Singh, a member of the Sikh Temple of Spokane (gurdwara) will be the guest speaker. A representative of Second Harvest of the Inland Northwest will also speak, and will give a report on hunger needs in the region.

Other guests from the Christian, Jewish, Muslim, New Thought, Native American and Hindu faith traditions will also share their reflections on “Giving Thanks for our Differences.”

Participants may bring canned goods and nonperishable food items for Second Harvest, or may bring a gift for the offering, which will be shared by Second Harvest and the council.
