The Nashville Church of Scientology celebrates the spirit of the holiday season with traditional events and get-togethers for friends, families and neighbors.
Because the Scientology religion is practiced in 184 nations, Scientologists come from a wide variety of faiths and cultural traditions. But no matter their background, they, like most people, gather with loved ones to enjoy the warmth of friends and family and celebrate the joy of the holiday season.
Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard honored the great religious leaders of the past for the wisdom they brought to the world, writing that Scientology shares “the goals set for Man by Christ, which are wisdom, good health and immortality.” It is in this spirit that Scientologists celebrate the holiday season, whether they observe Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, the Birth of Baha'u'llah, Bodhi Day, the Festival of Lights or any other religious or cultural tradition.
Pastor of the Nashville Church, Rev. Brian Fesler, says, “We love the holidays. Our church is all-denominational and multi-cultural. We enjoy bringing friends in throughout the season.”
The Church is hosting a Thanksgiving potluck dinner, there will be get-togethers throughout December, and on New Year’s Eve the church celebrates with a large-scale event to round off the year. It is at this event that the church reviews accomplishments made and sets the course for the year to come.
