Moving Beyond Myth:
A Justice-Centered Thanksgiving Service
Tuesday, November 22 | 7 to 9 PM | (Prelude to begin at 6:45 PM)
One of the highlights of the year -- the annual community-wide interfaith Thanksgiving service was hosted this year by the Rev. Dr. Dwayne Walker and the congregation of Little Rock A.M.E. Zion Church in Uptown Charlotte.
The 2022 Community-Wide Interfaith Thanksgiving Service included Indigenous Carolina Catawba, Lumbee, and Tuscarora artists and activists in crafting a service that incorporated their traditional and current practices to address the mythmaking around the traditional Thanksgiving story, offered a truer and more complete story, and suggested actions toward justice that attendees and MeckMIN can take. While deeply rooted in Indigenous history and traditions, the service was accessible to people of all faiths.
For 47 years we have gathered on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving to celebrate the rich and growing diversity of our community. We hope that those that attended left feeling more connected to and better able to love their neighbors.
