Nashville, TN, July 23, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- More than 100 pastors and community leaders are being called to participate in an interactive adventure in friendship, according to organizers of the Nashville celebration of International Friendship Day.
The celebration, which will take place in the community hall of the Nashville Church of Scientology at the end of the month, is bringing together people from all walks of life, religious backgrounds, cultures and communities to share a meal and learn more about each other.
International Day of Friendship is an annual observance, dignified in 2011 by the United Nations General Assembly with the idea that “friendship between peoples, countries, cultures and individuals can inspire peace efforts and build bridges between communities,” according to un.org. The resolution emphasizes that young people, as future leaders, can be brought together in activities with different cultures. This promotes international understanding and respect for diversity.
This is the second annual event for the day hosted by the Church of Scientology, with community leaders coming together to participate.
Rev. Brian Fesler, pastor of the Church, said, "There are too many problems in the world caused by a basic misunderstanding of each other. We need to come together, learn about each other, and end these problems," he says.
