Discussion Group: The Faith I Left Behind

Our March discussion is on the topic of journeys into unbelief.  The discussion will be based on a series of articles in the February/March 2014 issue of Free Inquiry magazine under the title, "The Faith I Left Behind" (pp. 16-36).  Several of the articles are available online.  If you would like to read the whole series, you can obtain a copy of the magazine at many bookstores and libraries.

    The articles I read were just... ok (not terrible, but not great). The discussion, on the other hand, was excellent. Very much enjoyed the converstation, and everyones' input.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
