The Religion Communicators Council meets each month to hear about a topic of interest. This month, the Nashville Chapter will hear from two organizations about how to put faith into action.
Religion Communicators are welcomed and invited to a meeting with a representative from the Nashville Rescue Mission, and one from the Salvation Army. Topic of the day: Putting Faith Into Action.
Both organizations began with a mission from a higher power. According to nashvillerescuemission.org, “Following God’s command to love our neighbor as ourselves, the Nashville Rescue Mission seeks to help the hurting of Middle Tennessee by offering food, clothing and shelter to the homeless and recovery programs to those enslaved in life degrading problems,” and according to salvationarmyusa.org, “The Salvation Army, an internal movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God.”
The Religion Communicators Council (RCC) hears regularly from such organizations to learn how they act out their faith. President of the Nashville chapter and pastor of the Church of Scientology, Rev. Brian Fesler says, “I’m always encouraging my parishioners to get out and be active in the community… and people like this just prove it’s all worthwhile.”
The RCC meeting will be held on October 16th over lunch at the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry.
The RCC is open to members from all denominations, and the Nashville group includes Baha’is, Christians, Jews, Muslims, Scientologists, and more. For further information about the RCC or their next meeting, visit www.religioncommunicators.org.
