The IAF has been invited by the United Church of Christ in Newton to give a presentation on what atheism is and what it means to be an atheist. This is part of a series that the church is doing on various religious beliefs in Iowa. They’ve already had a presentations by Muslims, Buddhist and Mormons.
What we’re going to present hasn’t been completely finalized yet but I’m expecting that Dave Grezkowiac, Kyle Bailey and myself will be talking about who we are and what it means to be an atheist in Iowa.
I know people that attend this particular church and I even attended a service, a church potluck and spoke with the pastor at length. This is about as liberal as a Christian church can get so I’m expecting the members of the congregation to be friendly but this is an event that is open to the general public so many non-church members will probably be there.
Since this is a public event, I encourage all of you to attend if possible.
