On the evening of Sunday, September 11, First United Methodist Church Plano, in conjunction with leaders of area mosques, synagogues, churches, and civic leaders in Plano, is planning to host a, interfaith service entitled “Together We Stand” between 6-7:30 pm. Between musical offerings and slide images, members of these religious and civic organizations will give short positive testimonies in memory of our first responders on 9/11.  We will also honor our current first responders as we work to reach across our fears and divisions of race, religion and justice in our communities. The goal of the evening is to inspire attendees with these testimonies and songs of common cause and solidarity and then move to a reception in the church's large rotunda gathering area where attendees can hold further discussions of possible next steps. We hope this event will promote and engender further continuing work between these groups in our community.
