The Church of Scientology Nashville is planning a special service to observe Religious Freedom Day.
Online PR News – 19-September-2019 – Nashville, TN – "Without freedom of religion, or freedom of thought, freedom itself cannot exist," says Rev. Brian Fesler, pastor of the Nashville Church of Scientology. Rev. Fesler is always out in the Nashville community, involved in interfaith services and activities, and is now planning the third annual observance of International Religious Freedom Day with a special service on the day.
"We've always opened our doors to anyone who is curious about us to help them understand. That is truly what Scientology is all about: understanding," says Rev. Fesler.
International Religious Freedom Day (October 27) recognizes the passing of the Religious Freedom Act of 1998, which established the office of the United States Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom and highlighted America's responsibility to the world in guaranteeing Human Right #18, Freedom of Thought and Belief.
To observe the day, the Church of Scientology Nashville is inviting a religious studies class to come to Sunday Service, have a tour of the church, and get their questions answered.
The Nashville Church has hosted numerous tours since it opened in the historic Fall School. Built in 1898 in a similar style to the city's iconic Ryman Auditorium, the 36,000-square-foot Church served the area as a public school until 1970. Many original features were preserved, including the hardwood floors, doors and stairwells and eight solid wood pillars capped with iron that support a central three-story atrium.
The Church's Sunday service is open to all people and consists of a reading of the Creed of the Church of Scientology, a sermon based on the writings of Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard or the playing of one of his recorded lectures, and the ministration of Scientology spiritual counseling in which all attending participate.
A highlight of the tour for many is the opportunity to "see a thought" with a demonstration of how the Scientology religious artifact, the E-Meter, registers and shows the changes in mental state of the individual.
