This group desires to contribute to the mission of the Scarritt Bennett Center with programs in justice, equality, faith and spirituality; work with the Nashville Cordell-Hull United Nations Association and the Global Action Summit on international Sustainable Development Goals; and collaborate with OneCity Nashville, an inner city campus devoted to green public spaces. Members have identified a need to fight adverse attitudes towards other religions, particularly against Islam, and view their diverse membership as a positive force for building bridges. Among their memorable activities are the Oneness Festival, a celebration where people sang, prayed and celebrated their different faiths; and the World Wisdom Bible, an anthology of texts from the world’s major religions dealing with perennial wisdom. They put together this Bible and hope it will be published in 2017. 

VALUE: Diversity of religions and faith paths of the core members as well as associates
