Thanksgiving interfaith service held


As they have for many years, the Malibu clergy conducted a Malibu Community Thanksgiving Service. This year, the locale for the 10 a.m. Thanksgiving morning service was the chapel at Pepperdine University, with its breathtaking stained-glass wall behind the pulpit.

Participating in the service were Rev. Ken Durham, Church of Christ at Pepperdine University, Monsignor John Sheridan and Father Bill Kerze, of Our Lady of Malibu, Rabbi Judith HaLevy, Malibu Jewish Center & Synagogue, Patti Mehring, First Church of Christ Scientist-Malibu, Rev. Karen Greschel, Malibu Presbyterian Church, Rev. Larry Peacock, Malibu United Methodist Church, and Rev. Susan Klein, Saint Aidan’s Episcopal Church. The song leader was Glen Webb, and the soloists Jeanine Metz and Sherry Woodruff.

After the service, as has been the Malibu tradition, a Thanksgiving dinner for people in need was offered at noon at the Malibu United Methodist Church.
