The Owensboro Daviess County Ministerial Association is sponsoring a monthly series of potlucks for the interfaith community. The first was held at the Hospital and attended by about 20 people.

Subsequent meals have been at UUCO, Third Baptist, and Zion United Church of Christ. At each gathering the host may give a brief presentation about their faith, the history of their community in Owensboro, a tour of their faith home and answer questions.

Guests are invited and asked to bring a dish and a card detailing all ingredients including seasonings.

Owensboro Convention Center Interfaith Service & Blessing

Owensboro Convention Center Interfaith Service & Blessing Sunday, February 2, 2014

Rev. Randy Jones, Woodlawn United Methodist, organized an interfaith service through the Owensboro-Daviess County Ministerial Association. Participating representatives were from Temple Adath Israel, Islamic Center of Owensboro, St. Stephen's Cathedral, Zion UCC, Woodlawn UMC, Tri-State Hindu Temple, Tri-State Jain Community, and Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Owensboro (UUCO).

Each representative offered a teaching or prayer about the importance of places, community, and right intention. The service concluded with a prayer from the UUCO Minister, Rev. Dr. Claudia A. Ramisch.

Wild Mountain Thyme offered several pieces of music on American folk instruments as part of the service. The service took place in the West Ballroom on the third floor after a buffet lunch. The warm atmosphere created in the Ballroom by the prayers helped us face the snow and cold that greeted us outside when the service was over!
