Inter-faith Thanksgiving services have been held on campus in the past, but the event has not taken place in recent years. Lindsey initiated the effort to start holding the service again.
"I think it's very important for all of us to pause and take a moment to give thanks. There are a lot of things that we need to give thanks for as we begin the holiday season," Lindsey said.
