The Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre Nashville hosted a special tea for grandparents on September 7th. This is part of a series the church 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.
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 founder of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard, stressed the importance of family, and it was this theme that drove the tea. Parishioners and guests heard from the writings of Mr. Hubbard and learned tools that will help them improve their relationships.
“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.”
“The Church of Scientology is the perfect place to talk about tools for life,” says parishioner Betsy Brubaker who organizes the series of Sunday Teas at the Church.
President of the Church, Corinne Sullivan was happy to host the tea and excited for the next, “we’ve scheduled the next one for December 14th at 2:30pm and it will be holiday themed – everyone who attends will be encouraged to bring gifts and we will have a gift exchange.”
