In-between music and prayer, Unite Williamson co-founder Dr. Ken Moore will sit down with Amy Alexander, co-founder of the Refuge Center, and Chancellor Randy Lowry of Lipscomb to discuss individual and community strategies for connecting with others, loving your neighbor, and finding hope.

Franklin Mayor, Dr. Ken Moore and Shorter Chapel AME Church pastor Dr. Kenneth Hill founded the organization- not in his official capacity as mayor, but as a resident of the Williamson County community- after witnessing the response of a diverse faith-based community following the shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, SC. 

“In the wake of that horrific event, people of all faiths came to the support of the church and the surrounding community,” recalled Moore. “Through Unite Williamson, we hope to strengthen our community by creating a formal connection through prayer and commitment to bring hope and unity in a time of great need, should it arise.” 

“I believe that across all faiths there is a shared compassion that calls us to give of ourselves for the good of others,” offered Moore. “Our hope is that those who attend this event will take the hope, excitement and commitment to serve our county back to their places of worship and surrounding communities.”

Unite Williamson organizers invite all citizens from across the county to participate in this year’s event. The organization asks those not able to attend in-person to join the group in praying for Williamson County.
