Thanks can be expressed in any language or tradition.</p><p>And that’s just what happened Sunday at an Interfaith Thanksgiving Service. Christians, Muslims and Jews, Baha'is, Buddhists and Hindus, and people from several other faith traditions came together to share. Beliefs and languages converged as sounds of thanksgiving and peace rose through the air.</p> Thu, 22 Nov 2012 12:00:00 +0000 Kellie Moore 24820 at http://kbia.org Cultures, beliefs converge with Interfaith Thanksgiving Service Muslims in Joplin receive interfaith support after mosque fire http://kbia.org/post/muslims-joplin-receive-interfaith-support-after-mosque-fire <p></p><p>It’s been about one month since a fire destroyed the only mosque in Joplin.
