Conversations Among Humanists, Atheists and Religious Believers

Greetings friends.  I wanted to announce our next COMMON GROUND meetup at our place in Wayne, New Jersey. It should prove to be easier for more people. 

Alicia, we will pick you up at Willowbrook Mall if you can come.

We have not taken up the discussion guide from Chris Stedman's book, The Faitheist. You may get a chance to through more of it by our meeting. 

How do we build bridges between secularists and religious believers? Lots of insight in our last meeting. 

Discussion guide is on line under the file menu. There is also a guide on atheist/theist dialogue. 

Peace, Carl

    Krista Tippett, the host of "On Being" received the National Humanities Medal on July 28, 2014. She received this honor because she "thoughtfully delves into the mysteries of human existence." The White House statement reads in part: "On the air and in print, Ms. Tippett avoids easy answers, embracing complexity and inviting people of all faiths and every background to join the conversation.

      Hi Carl and Alicia, I will be there at 2:20/2:30. I will be where the bus from NYC stops. Also, please call me on my cell if you don't see me since a lot of buses stop and go at Willowbrook Mall and there is a different "station" for each bus. [masked]

    What a shame that Stedman and others like him had wrestle with the truths of who he really is and stands for.

      Hi Rosalie, yes it is. But sometimes these kinds of struggles lead to important steps in life. Sometimes it takes something hard like this to open new avenues that are much more hopeful. For us as Catholics, it is the mystery of Christ's cross.

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.
