he Interreligious Prayer Service for Peace and Justice has been held for the past 12 years. Since the United Nation General Assembly designated the first week of February as a World Interfaith Harmony Week in 2010, the prayer gathering is celebrating the occasion as well. Participants of this year's prayer, held at the Community Unitarian Universalist Congregation on Rosedale Avenue in White Plains, included representatives of Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jewish, Mormon, Christian, and Muslim organizations and more. In his opening prayer, Rev. Meredith Garmon, of the Community Unitarian Universalist Congregation, preached from the podium, saying that different people have different experiences of the world, and they have different stories to tell.
