March is the statewide food drive campaign organized by Minnesota FoodShare. Hundreds of local food shelves across the state benefit from the food collected by businesses, organizations, and churches during this March campaign.
Continuing our mission of Positive Atheism in Action, the Minnesota Atheists is providing our members and supporters with a fun and free De-Baptism ceremony that will irreverently celebrate the rewards of godless freethinking and our local atheist community.
Participants who get de-baptized will receive a pleasant burst of warm air under the Hair Dryer of Reason which will symbolically dry off the water from your past baptism. If you have no baptism to renounce you can still fully participate to confirm your rejection of religious faith and archaic legends for an acceptance of reason in the corporeal world. Participants will also receive specially designed De-Baptism certificates to commemorate the event.
After we're done with the de-baptism ceremony we'll go to one of the fine eateries in Maplewood. That is TBD, but one idea is Acapulco
The only thing we ask that you bring is some non-perishable food items. Please don't use this as an opportunity to clean out your cupboards. We want to proudly donate good quality food that has not expired. Some ideas to consider: Pasta, cereal, canned fruit/veggies, juice, boxed dinners, canned chili, and tuna. For more ideas, click HERE. Cash donations are also accepted. Checks can be written out to Keystone Community Services which is who the food donations will be given to.
