Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Ritual Dinner
The 28th Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Ritual Dinner will be held on Sunday, November 18, 2012, at the Inn at Unity Village, 1901 NW Blue Parkway, Unity Village, MO 64065-0001. The dinner, created and hosted by Rev. Vern Barnet and CRES from 1984 to 2009, is now hosted by the Heartland Chapter of the Alliance of Divine Love, in cooperation with the interfaith community, including the Greater Kansas City Interfaith Council.
The Interfaith Thanksgiving Dinner brings together people from different faith traditions and cultures in recognition and celebration of our common American culture and experience. The dinner is also the occasion of the presentation by the Heartland Chapter ADL of The Vern Barnet Interfaith Service Award. The 2012 award will be presented to Larry Guillot, a member of the Board of Advisors of the Greater Kansas City Interfaith Council, Board of Advisors and past Chair of the Board of CRES (Center for Religious Experience and Study), and a long-time educator and consultant in nonprofit management.

The Village includes chapels, meeting spaces, a conference center and library, situated on a Mediterranean-style campus set on 1400 acres of gardens and fountains and is often the site of retreats and classes.
