John Spencer. Computer programmer. Have 'wondered' aobut Christianity and Athesim for many years. Would be interesting to hear the Feb 4, 2013 discussion.
The group was spontaneous and welcoming (for me as as new attendee)... I was stunned that such a group existed in Lancaster (my birthplace). Though I do realize that as the years have gone on, newer people bring newer ideas. Quite refreshing really -- as Lancastrians can be insular and provincial... Generally, I have made the 'A' announcement with persons who have known me for some time. I have also made the 'A' announcement with persons that I have just met in order to have an honest conversation continue. I have generally followed Scott's quite tempered advice regarding the 'A' announcement. I can see that the efforts of the group need support. I intend to do that. If only to support with membership money... John R Spencer
