Day of Reason (Opposite the Day of Prayer)

Our keynote speaker will be Jim Barron of the Boulder Atheists. Jim was from a very Christian family. He will talk about what prayer meant for him as a young believer and how he feels now about his family wanting to pray for him. He thinks this will promote a better understanding of and empathy for people of faith. It should also help people deal with situations in which prayer is offered. This is an “open-mike” in which anyone can talk events in their own lives that made them choose to walk away from religion. These experiences can be books, movies, friendships, or whatever.

    Not sure if I can make this, but did want to say thanks to whoever took the initiative to designate this as a 'featured' meetup. The ongoing/recurring events are wonderful, but it's good to see the one-off events get a bit more 'early' exposure.

      Scot - Hope you can make it. It looks like a good event and we need to see that people are interested.

    I'm really bummed that I can't make this, but I'm drowning in homework right now. Still hope to make Cosmos Sunday, but even that is up in the air right now. Ton of homework assignments due next week, and none of them finished. (And finals week after that.) But the semester is almost ever...

      Sorry you can't make it. School work has to come first. Good luck with it.

    I wish I lived closer! Might see if the C/S Freethinkers want to host something similar!
