Friendship Day 2019
Disagreeing Without Being Disagreeable
Date: July 30, 2019
Venue: Church of Scientology, 1130 8th Ave S, Nashville TN
Tickets: Free at Eventbrite
Attend the fifth annual Friendship Day dialogue event! All are welcome!
Join us to agree and disagree with people of all kinds!
Featuring Kalinda Fisher, founder of the national dialogue community, The Great Reset.
News Channel 5 covered her innovative dialogue experiences in a segment titled “Disagreeing without being Disagreeable.” This launched The Great Reset into a nationwide movement with dialogue groups in California, Wisconsin, Illinois, New York, Tennessee and Ohio.
Kalinda will guide us through conversation to learn more about our neighbors—and ourselves.
The International Day of Friendship began in 2011 when the United Nations recognized that “friendship between peoples, countries, cultures and individuals can inspire peace efforts and build bridges between communities.”
In 2015, more than 80 community members came together at the Church of Scientology in Nashville to celebrate Friendship Day, break down barriers, and increase friendship across racial, religious and socioeconomic lines. Police officers and gang members participated in the same room. Racial and national lines were crossed with abandon, bringing African American, White, Indian, African, Hispanic and Asian attendees a new look at each other and life.
The same happened again in 2016, with a focus on religious diversity. There were Methodist, Baptist, Sikh, Scientologist, Jewish, Latter-Day Saints, Muslim, Catholic, Jewish, those with no religious affiliation and more who attended the discussion to break down barriers.
And yet again in 2017 and 2018, we had a multitude of more than 20 nationalities all sitting at tables together, breaking bread and discussing values.
It’s time to come together again, for another ground-breaking event. Registration, networking and dinner begin at 4pm; the program begins at 4:30pm. We welcome your participation and urge you to bring people who would not ordinarily engage in such activity!
