The Unitarian Universalist Congregational Society of Westborough hosted Wednesday night's service.
Westborough's 40th Annual Interfaith Community Service Thanksgiving Service included wisdom from Hebrew Scripture, Christian Scripture, the Ute Indians of North America, an anonymous poet, and a Springfield Nuclear Power Plant safety inspector.
