MLK Service

RCC members participated in a fabulous service where four churches joined together to celebrate the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. The churches participating were: Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church, First Unitarian Universalist Church, the Church of Scientology and Historic Community Church. The Service was held at Corinthian and began with a potluck at 2pm, where all church members and others from the community came together to break bread. After that, all moved swiftly to the sanctuary where they felt a sense of community unlike anything before.  There was a mix of races and faith, and all church choirs sang together, each church pastor led a part of the service and a wide variation of people sat together in the pews. Nashville chapter members who participated were Brian Fesler, Carol Mansour and Julie Brinker. Julie also sent out a press release covering this historic event and two newspapers covered it – The Nashville Pride Newspaper and the Tennessee Tribune.
