Interfaith, intergenerational, interdependent.

Over the weekend of May 1, 2010, Nashville, Tennessee and surrounding areas experienced what is being called a 1000 year flood.
Lives were lost. Homes were damaged, businesses were shut down, precious people and habitats and dwellings were swept away.

Amidst devastation and tragedy, we held together and found the blessing of each other: neighbor helping neighbor, congregations and grassroots groups springing into action while the national news hadn't quite caught up.
We are Nashville.
Our 5th Annual Mother's Day Peace Parade was preempted by flood relief. Instead, here we have the virtual Pennies & Prayers Parade.

We are Nashville. And all who love her. You are warmly encouraged to participate in action -- a) collect pennies with our children, turn them in to soon to be designated collection spots across town, and / or donate through paypal using the button here, or by emailing Bridge Builders, a peace and social justice club for children of all ages and their caregivers will make a lump sum donation of all funds taken in to the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. b) upload your photo and INTERFAITH prayer(s) or inspirational text here on parade by emailing to
