The public is invited to the 12th annual “United We Sing” celebration at Sunday 4 p.m. Nov. 18 at the Unitarian Universalist Meeting House, 1475 W. Front St.
The intercultural service of music, word and dance presents voices of different faiths raised in joy and gratitude.
Sponsored by the Monmouth Center for World Religions and Ethical Thought and the Social Action Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Monmouth County, the event has its origins in the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001.
In anguish and sorrow, people came together from different cultural and faith traditions to proclaim and celebrate the richness of diversity.
The healing effect of the evening led the organization to repeat the event with presentations over the last 11 years from the Muslim, Jain, Christian, Baha’i, Hindu, Sikh, Jewish, Native American, Buddhist and UU communities.
Children are especially welcome to attend. Refreshments will be provided after the program. The program is free of charge.

The Colts Neck Reformed Church’s annual Election Day luncheon and dinner and the church’s craft bazaar have been postponed.
The 146th annual turkey luncheon and dinner will be held Tuesday, Jan 22, during the week of presidential inauguration.
The annual craft bazaar will be held Saturday, Dec. 1.
The traditional luncheon and dinner is the melding of two church events: The annual Harvest Home Supper, held in the fall on a Wednesday evening beginning in 1866 – 10 years after the church was founded – and the church’s first Election Day luncheon in 1922 when church members served hot dogs, clam chowder, crackers and coffee to those casting ballots nearby.
More than 800 people are served during the dinner.
The craft bazaar is also a long tradition, held in the church basement and stocked with items made and donated by church members.
The church is located on Route 537.
