The Nashville Church of Scientology will be hosting a special Sunday Tea in honor of Grandparents’ Day.
Grandparents’ Day has been celebrated in the United States on each Sunday following Labor Day since 1978 when President Jimmy Carter signed a proclamation for this to be a national holiday. The holiday focuses on recognizing the role of the millions of older Americans who are grandparents.
The Church of Scientology in Nashville announced this week that it would host a special tea for grandparents on September 7th. This is part of a series the church now does – tea time with a twist. Guests are able to relax and chat with one another, but also learn something from the scriptures of Scientology to help them in life.
President Carter was quoted as saying, “Because [grandparents] are usually free to love and guide and befriend the young without having to take daily responsibility for them, they can often reach out past pride and fear of failure and close the space between generations.”
The founder of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard, stressed the importance of family, and it will be with this theme that the tea will occur.
“Scientology means ‘knowing how to know,’” according to the church’s website, “Scientology is all about learning to do things to improve conditions in your own life and in particular in the lives of others. An active Scientologist is not only considered to be someone who attends a Scientology church or studies Scientology, but rather someone who actively uses the insights and knowledge that Scientology gives them to make a real, positive difference in the lives of others.”
“Our Sunday Teas encompass what our church is all about - sharing knowledge,” says President of the Church, Corinne Sullivan.
“The Church of Scientology is the perfect place to talk about tools for life,” says parishioner Betsy Brubaker who took part in organizing the series of Sunday Teas at the Church.
