For the past 10 years followers of many religions have gathered on Thanksgiving Morning for an interfaith sermon to give thanks and share moments of congeniality. This year, Shaykh Ahmed abdur Rashid presided at the Thanksgiving Interfaith Service at the Centenary Methodist Church, Lynchburg, VA.
“No one can remember something they never truly experienced. We can remember what we were told or a picture we were shown, but we affirm that remembering the Divine is only possible because we have experienced the Divine. And remembering the Divine as Present each and every moment is enabled by gratitude. Gratitude is the path to humility, which is the doorway to Peace and security, the abode of a clean and pure heart.” – Shaykh Ahmed Abdur Rashid
