Nashville Religion Communicators Council Discusses Violence, Faith and Hope

The Nashville Chapter of the Religion Communicators Council holds bi-monthly meetings to discuss hot topics and have deep discussions on what is happening in the world today.

Recent violence in the United States began the conversation for the Nashville Chapter of the Religion Communicators Council, but as each person put their deep-seated beliefs on the table, hope became the keyword during this bi-monthly meeting in the series: “Building Bridges Over Bagels."

The longest running interfaith communications organization in the United States, the Religion Communicators Council (RCC), has chapters across the country that meet regularly and promote excellence in the communication of religious faith and values in the public arena and encourage understanding among religious and faith groups. In Nashville, the RCC Chapter has bi-monthly meetings to discuss hot topics and how they, as people of faith, may influence others.

Attendees engaged about how individual religious practices shape lives, and how we can change the world by starting right in our own homes. Participants pointed out how they believe that it starts with oneself and being good to one's own family.

The meeting took place at the Islamic Center of Tennessee. Past meeting locations have included the Church of Scientology, Baha’i Faith Community Center and United Methodist Communications. The next meeting location will be announced on the Nashville RCC website, and takes place on September 13th at 8:30am.  

The RCC has members from every faith group and walk of life including Baha’is, Christians, Jews, Muslims, Scientologists, Sikhs, Hindus and more. For more information about the RCC or its next meeting, visit
