Chris Stedman: Faitheist

Having endured intolerance as a gay Christian and then as an atheist interfaith activist, Stedman now argues for respectful dialogue between atheists and believers and cooperation in social action between secular and interfaith communities.

Stedman will speak about his work as an atheist-interfaith activist and why he thinks atheists and the religious should work to find common ground, all themes he discusses in his recent book Faitheist.

This is a co-presentation by Center for Inquiry–Portland and the Alliance of Happy Atheists!

Chris Stedman is the Assistant Humanist Chaplain at Harvard University and the Values in Action Coordinator for the Humanist Community at Harvard, where he was previously the inaugural Interfaith and Community Service Fellow. He is also the Emeritus Managing Director of State of Formation at the Journal of Inter-Religious Dialogue and founder of the first blog dedicated to exploring atheist-interfaith engagement, NonProphet Status.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
