”We’re happy to be here this morning as people of faith coming together united. I think that’s what God desires — people of different backgrounds, races, cultures and ethnicities sitting together.”
— Interfaith Community Initiatives former president Angela Harrington
Dancing, dining and a sense of unity was on display at the inaugural Interfaith Prayer Breakfast Thursday morning.
To celebrate National Day of Prayer, an annual observance on the first Thursday in May since 1952, Gwinnett residents from all faiths gathered for fellowship at Infinite Energy Center in Duluth.
