Rev. Abhi Janamanchi is the senior minister at Cedar Lane Unitarian Universalist Church.

“We want to highlight the multicultural and pluralistic society we are a part of in the U.S. and especially here in Montgomery County. Dr. King believed that the various faith traditions were essentially united in their belief about ultimate reality and also in their conceptions of love which he called the “supreme unifying principle of life,”  Janamanchi said.

The service will start at 3 p.m. and take place at 9601 Cedar Lane in Bethesda. Refreshments will be served shortly after the event.
