Join us via ZOOM only from January 12 - February 23 for our series "Exploring the Religions of the World." Dr. Jim Goodnow recently moved to Franklin and joined our church, and he has taught at schools across the world. The seven presentations on World Religions give an introductory overview of the origins, tenets and practices of the globe's major non-Christian faith traditions including Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Confucianism, Daoism, Shinto, Judaism, Islam and selected others. You are encouraged to read the corresponding book to this study The Religions Book: Big Ideas Simply Explained available on Amazon. Jim has also provided a thorough handout to study along with the lesson. The zoom link isuploaded to our website weekly.
Williamson County Baha'i Movie Night
The racial unrest the last few years has shown a spotlight on Black Lives Matter, but a lot of people don't know the full history behind BLM, who started it or why. This month's movie night features the documentary "Stay Woke: The Black Lives Matter Movement". Executive producer Jesse Williams was concerned that a lot of misinformation was gaining traction and it was important to hear directly from the people involved: "My experiences in Ferguson and everywhere else -- as an activist and educator -- are that all of our work and experience is, regardless of how [opponents] try to frame it, about love. Love for self, love for us, love for our people. Love for humanity and love for the real great potential we have as a culture but also this nation has by putting its best foot forward."
 
Join us for the screening and discussion Friday, January 21 at 7pm:
