New York, May 26, 2010 — The Interchurch Center in New York’s Morningside
Heights, once envisioned as a “Protestant Vatican on the Hudson,” has evolved
over fifty years into an interfaith, multi-ethnic community of non-profit,
educational and church agencies.

That may not be what the planners expected, but it turned out “very good,”
said the Rev. Dr. Michael Kinnamon, General Secretary of the National Council
of Churches…..

An interfaith trio offered the call to worship: Father Robert George
Stephanopoulos, Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America; Rabbi Marcus L.
Burstein; and Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf. Lois M. Dauway, a member of The
Interchurch Center board, led a responsive reading.

The Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, Presiding Bishop and Primate of the
Episcopal Church, led a litany of remembrance and rededication.


The Lord’s Prayer was led by the Rev. Dr. Kermit J. DeGraffenreidt,
Secretary-Editor for the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church and a former
member of The Interchurch Center board.
