The Nashville Church of Scientology supports the good works of others. Today’s highlight: People of faith working together to improve conditions.
If you’re a person of faith and looking for a way to get involved in the community, Nashville, Tennessee is calling your name. Many men and women of God live in and around Nashville and are working every day to improve the lives of the people in the city.
Most of these go unnoticed but by the people directly involved. For example, a group of religious people from different faiths gather monthly to make the city greener, more beautiful, healthier and more energy efficient. Under the name “Interfaith Earth Care Network” they are making a difference.
Then, there is a group of pastors who meet weekly to discuss the many problems and destructive influences at work in society and how to bring about social justice. The Interdenominational Ministers Fellowship has worked on these issues for five decades.
The Religion Communicators Council, a national organization going on its 85th anniversary, has a chapter in Nashville, an interfaith group composed of media professionals and communicators who work day in and day out to spread the good news.
There are many others who take part in active work to help the city. Residents volunteer with the group Hands On Nashville, while others volunteer at local soup kitchens or facilities for the homeless, such as the Room in the Inn, Safe Haven and the Nashville Rescue Mission.
Nashville is a hub for religious and spiritually rewarding work and is growing. There are many ways to get involved; it’s just a matter of knowing where to look.
