Information: Charlotte’s 41st Annual Citywide Interfaith Thanksgiving Service is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 22, at Providence Baptist Church (4921 Randolph Rd., 28211), welcoming people of all faiths and backgrounds to celebrate diversity and pray for unity in these challenging times. Speakers will include James Ford (2014-15 NC Teacher of the Year), Toussaint Romain (Mecklenburg Co. Public Defender and a voice for peaceful protest during Charlotte’s September demonstrations) and Rose Hamid (Muslim mom who has long advocated for reconciliation). The service, presented by MeckMin, will feature interfaith adult and children’s choirs plus an interfaith orchestra and congregational readings led by teens. This year’s theme is inspired by the familiar anthem that closes each gathering: “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.”
