The subjects of this meeting are Atheist Etiquette and Non-religious convocations.
On the first topic:
There are situations that we all face because of our Atheism that call for response, even if the response is to say nothing. Everyone of us has been God blessed or received comments laced with religious innuendo. It's often good to have a measured, practiced response on the ready.
Store clerk: Merry Chrismas!
You: Ah thanks, and may you have a happy and rewarding holiday season!
It is so much better than saying, "Screw you! I don't believe in mythical beings!"
For the second topic (only if you're into it):
Prepare a 90 second convocation for a religiously mixed gathering. For example, pretend you're opening a city council meeting. Everyone that prepares one will get the chance to deliver it. I'll bring a small PA system. After hearing them, we'll get a chance to critique each one and offer suggestions for improvement. In the end, we may create one, in the meeting, committee style.
Should be fun. See you there.
This is a recurring meeting. The group meets on the third Monday of the month at the Denny's on Speedway. The meeting officially begins at 7PM but many people choose to meet earlier to socialize before the meeting. I start setting up equipment around 6 and enjoy the company while I get the equipment ready for the meeting.
