Service: “First Thanksgiving” with Rev. Kendyl Gibbons
November 18 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm
More than 50 years before the Mayflower Pilgrims set foot on Plymouth Rock, Spanish explorers in Florida celebrated a Catholic mass of thanksgiving and a cooperative feast with members of the local Temecuah tribe on the southern Atlantic coast. The colony of La Florida, including St. Augustine and later Fort Mose, would become a multi-cultural community of Europeans, Indians, and Africans escaping from slavery — the earliest Underground Railroad actually ran south. There is much to inspire gratitude and honor, and to challenge our conventional wisdom, in this little-known history. The choir will sing, and we will celebrate our newest young Chalice Lighters.
