Members of the Nashville Church of Scientology commemorated United Nations International Day of Friendship with a community cleanup on July 29, 2014.
In 2011, the United Nations proclaimed International Friendship Day in the belief that “friendship between peoples, countries, cultures and individuals can inspire peace efforts and build bridges between communities.” In keeping with the United Nations’ intention, the Church of Scientology helped The Way to Happiness Kids Club get together to clean up a street which had been cluttered with litter.
The Kids Club was proud to set a good example by living The Way to Happiness precept “Safeguard and Improve Your Environment.” The Way to Happiness is comprised of 21 precepts, each one predicated on the fact that one’s survival depends on the survival of others—and that without the survival of others, neither joy nor happiness are attainable.
Rev. Brian Fesler who coordinates the Way to Happiness Kids Club said, “Friendship is all about helping others. These kids were eager to get out in the community and do something that would help, and I couldn’t be more proud.”
The Way to Happiness was written in 1981 by L. Ron Hubbard. Non-religious in nature and based wholly on common sense, it has been immensely popular since its first publication with more than 109 million copies distributed in 111 languages in 209 countries, territories and dependencies. The Church of Scientology and its members are proud to share the tools for happier living contained in The Way to Happiness with anyone who has the goal of a better world.
“The Way to Happiness - Creating a World of Honesty, Trust & Self-Respect” is one of a series of brochures published by the Church of Scientology International to meet requests for more information about the Scientology religion and its support of global humanitarian initiatives and social betterment programs.
