Ethos, Tokens, & Room in the Inn

This Sunday Night we have an awesome opportunity to kickoff our Thanksgiving Week by partnering with TOKENS to bless our friends at ROOM IN THE INN. For those of you attending our (9:15AM, 10:45AM, or 5PM Worship Gathering) this will be a great opportunity to hear great music, laugh, think, and enjoy great fellowship all for a wonderful cause. Lee Camp and the folks from Tokens have offered us a group discount, so make sure you let them know at the Ryman Box Office you are with Ethos. To find out more, keep reading:Join us for a benefit for Room in the Inn, this Sunday November 20, 7:30 p.m. at the historic Ryman Auditorium.

Make this night a wonderful start to your Thanksgiving week, and an even better way to take care of our neighbors as we count our own blessings.  We were pleased to help raise almost $17,000 for Room in the Inn last year, and we hope with your help to raise even more this year!  Your ticket to the show can be a gift of shelter, hope, and hospitality.

Tokens welcomes Ketch Secor of Old Crow Medicine Show, Mike Farris and the Roseland Rhythm Revue, the Nashville Choir, Odessa Settles, Buddy Greene, Brother Preacher, the Most Outstanding Horeb Mountain Boys, and more! 

The Nashville Scene called Tokens "a ’grass-kicking shred fest," while Sojourners opined that “…if A Prairie Home Companion ever moved South and got religion—or at least went to divinity school—it might look a lot like TOKENS.”

Tokens is a variety show that has been described as “Garrison Keillor meets Bill Moyers;  Thomas Merton—Catholic monk, social activist, and writer—goes to the Grand Ol’ Opry;  or Mark Twain meets God, and likes the God he meets.”  Tokens engages world-class musicians, vocalists, and authors in a provocative, engaging, and thoughtful format.  Comprising Nashville A-list musicians in its house band—Jeff Taylor, Aubrey Haynie, Byron House, Buddy Greene, Chris Brown, and Pete Huttlinger—Tokens has hosted vocalists and song-writers such as Vince Gill, Keb’ Mo’, Cherryholmes, Amy Grant, Ricky Skaggs, Mary Gauthier, Marcus Hummon, Andrew Peterson, Over the Rhine,  Ashley Cleveland, Odessa Settles, and Derek Webb; and authors such as Barbara Brown Taylor, Andrew Bacevich, A.J. Levine, Jim Wallis, Shane Claiborne, A.J. Jacobs, Mako Fujimura, Brian McLaren, and Will Campbell.
