Holiday Interfaith Service at Church of Scientology of Sacramento
Tolerance and compassion was the message of the sixth annual interfaith service at the Church of Scientology Sacramento.
Sacramento, California, December 27, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Rev. Kay Alice Daly of the Church of Scientology and Rev. Alice Baber-Banks, president and head pastor of the Christian Fellowship Ministry Church, shared the rostrum at the sixth annual Holiday Interfaith Service at the Church of Scientology Sacramento.
Sister Baber-Banks delivered a sermon quoting Bible verses on peace, love and tolerance. Choir members from her congregation inspired and uplifted those gathered in the chapel of the Church of Scientology, reinforcing Baber-Banks' message of love and respect as the means of increasing understanding among diverse groups.
Rev. Daly read “What Is Greatness,” an essay by Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard in which he wrote, “The hardest task one can have is to continue to love his fellows despite all reasons he should not. And the true sign of sanity and greatness is to so continue. For the one who can achieve this, there is abundant hope…Happiness and strength endure only in the absence of hate. To hate alone is the road to disaster. To love is the road to strength. To love in spite of all is the secret of greatness. And may very well be the greatest secret in this universe.”
All attending then joined in a medley of Christmas songs.
