July Meeting: Violence, Faith and Hope

The recent news of 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."

Baha'i, Muslim, Remnant Fellowship member and Scientologist each engaged about how individual religious practices shape our lives, and how we can change the world by starting right in our own homes. Candace Anger, with Remnant Fellowship church, pointed out how they believe that it starts with oneself and being good to one's own family. This was echoed by every other person at the table, across religious lines.
The meeting took place at the Islamic Center of Tennessee. The next meeting location will be announced on the Nashville RCC website, and takes place on September 13th at 8:30am.  

Attending the meeting were: Tedd and Candace Anger of Remnant Fellowship Church, Miley Barcus of Remnant Fellowship Church, Carol Mansour with Baha'is of Middle Tennessee, Aisha Lbhalla with Muslim Women's Council, and Julie Brinker with the Church of Scientology.
