We Intend to Change the World through the Power of Christ-like Speech

Cross and Crown Lutheran Church in Florence, South Carolina and Providence Baptist Church on Daniel Island will celebrate Say Something Nice Sunday on June 11, Rev. Mary Finklea is pastor of Cross and Crown and Dr. Don Flowers is pastor of Providence. Rev. Finklea. and her congregation are long term supporters of the celebration.

This will be the first year for Providence and we are grateful for its support. Providence offers a progressive theological voice to the community. Corlys Devenny provided guidance and leadership.

On June 4, Rev. Bob Boston provided the Children’s Sermon at Circular Congregational Church in Charleston. He based his message on Say Something Nice and gave each of the children a button with the instructions, “When you go back to your seat ask your parent or teacher to pin the button on for you and then you say something nice.” His message was well received.

The Charleston/Atlantic Presbytery was one of the earliest supporters of our movement. This year Harborview Presbyterian Church on James Island under the leadership of Pastor Randy Boone joined the celebration. The church also sponsored an essay contest for students on the topic of the importance of saying nice things. Rev. Boone is a member of our steering committee.

We rejoice over each new congregation that joins our movement. We have a simple objective. We intend to change the world through the power of Christ-like speech. We urge you to join us. Talk with your pastor. Write, call, email or message all of your friends and ask for their help. There is nothing to buy or join. Help is available if you need it. A church is free to choose any Sunday for the celebration.

First Baptist Church of Charleston is the flagship and has provided tremendous encouragement. The staff and congregation are unwavering in their support. The time is right and the cause in urgent. Please help.
