Special Nashville Screening: A Prayer for Compassion

Needs a location

This event is a cross-post from Vegan Peace: https://www.meetup.com/Vegan-Peace/events/265773794/ PLEASE NOTE: One week left to sell 40 more tickets to bring this inspiring film to Nashville! Tickets are $12 - if you can help, please do! https://www.tugg.com/events/a-prayer-for-compassion-_pwr Here in Nashville, we're smack-dab in the middle of the Bible Belt - and yet most people of faith are eating animals. Join us for this special, one-time Nashville screening of the documentary A Prayer for Compassion, which follows award-winning filmmaker Thomas Wade Jackson in his quest across the country and around the world to discover how people with serious religious convictions can take their spiritual principles into the supermarket. Featuring representatives from virtually all spiritual traditions, A Prayer for Compassion calls upon people of faith to bring about a world in which the Golden Rule is applied to ALL of God's creatures.

Annual Vegan Thanksgiving Feast

Location visible to members

Mark your calendars for the upcoming Vegan Thanksgiving Feast! Bring something to share and we'll dine on a bountiful spread of tasty fall vegetables, vegan dishes, and desserts. It's an ideal way to give thanks for the abundance of the season. And remember, it's not Thanksgiving without a green bean casserole so I'll bring one this year along with a Tofurky roast (as well as my famous gluten-free portabello mushroom bake). Everyone's invited, vegan or not, but all dishes must be vegan: no dairy, egg, meat, seafood, or insect products. If you know what you'll be bringing, please comment and let us know. Also, bring a serving utensil for your dish. Please note that the church has a no-alcohol policy, so please do not bring any alcoholic beverages as your contribution for this event. Nonalcoholic beverages such as vegan cider, juice, or milks are welcome and appreciated. :) This year we'll be at a new location, the Fellowship Hall of Eastwood Christian Church at 1601 Eastland Avenue in East Nashville. Of course this is still a secular, non-religiously affiliated Nashvegans event and everyone is invited, but this was the largest space that was available for us to use on this date since the location we usually use didn't work out this year. The potluck will be held in the Fellowship Hall of the Education Center, which is attached to the church. Enter through the red double-doors (near 16th Street and playground); the Fellowship Hall is on the second floor. The church has graciously offered to give us this space without asking for payment, but they would appreciate any donations you would like to contribute as a thank you for letting us use this space, so if you feel comfortable donating please do so. It is very kind of them to allow us to use their spaces for vegan events (Nashvegans member Chrissy B also uses space in this church for her "Vegan Peace" meetup if you'd like to check that one out.) Thanks so much, looking forward to seeing everyone there! :)
