Nashville Church of Scientology Celebrates Founder L. Ron Hubbard’s 106th Birthday

(Before It's News)

Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard’s 106th birthday will be celebrated in Nashville by Tennessee area Scientologists on March 18, 2016.

 

Born March 13, 1911, L. Ron Hubbard had a varied and exciting life. An International celebration of what would have been his hundred and sixth birthday is being pre-recorded in Florida and will be shown to parishioners in Tennessee the following weekend.  There will be refreshments and even a cake contest to bring in the festivities locally.

 

Born in Tilden, Nebraska to a career Naval Officer, Lt. Harry Ross Hubbard, and the well-educated Ledora May, Hubbard had memories of “…being insufferably hot in a swing in an Oklahoma yard…of watching bluebirds from a tent at the ‘Old Homestead’…of Dad carefully abstaining from water when the car broke down in a limitless Nevada desert, of rain at night in San Diego, of my Uncle Bob’s coffee store in Tacoma, of the awful abyss below the curling mountain roads of the Rockies, of, in short, many cities, many country sides…and all this before I was ten.”  

 

After becoming America’s youngest Eagle Scout at the age of 13, Hubbard went on to become an accomplished pilot, a master mariner, a photographer, a prolific writer of stories for pulp fiction magazines (which funded his research into the mind and life) and a Captain in the US Navy during World War II.

 

Hubbard’s journeys through the Far East and the Caribbean brought him face to face with many different kinds of people, fueling his drive to solve the riddles of life and enable all to achieve happiness, spiritual awareness and success in life.   How he took what he learned from these adventures and arranged this knowledge into what would become Dianetics and Scientology is available on-line as an interactive biography at www.lronhubbard.org.

 

Scientologists around the world gather to celebrate Mr. Hubbard’s birthday each year in a special celebration where they hear stories from people who knew him while he was alive, and celebrate advances made in churches across the world.

 

“We are celebrating the wonderful gifts L. Ron Hubbard gave mankind,” said Rev. Brian Fesler, pastor of the Nashville Church of Scientology. “Mr. Hubbard’s writings bring a lot of hope for a better world, and a way to accomplish that.  We are honored to host this event.”
