Pastor Johnny Mercado used his special recipe to cook the turkey for Iglesia Emmanuel’s fourth annual pre-Thanksgiving dinner, but didn’t have a chance to eat any of it. He was too busy preparing for one of the most important sermons of his career.

“I’m really excited because today’s a new beginning for our church,” Mercado said.

On the Friday before Thanksgiving, Mercado held the first official service in his congregation’s new home.

Members of the Sikhs for Justice Organization rallied at Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza to remember the thousands of Sikhs murdered between Oct. 31 and Nov. 3, 1984. The killings were thought to be a reaction to the assassination of India’s Prime Minister Indira Ghandi by two Sikh security staff.

Many of the speakers at the event also spoke about the need for an autonomous state for Sikhs due to ongoing persecution in India.
