Sunday Assembly: Live better, Help often and Wonder more

Celebrating life and bringing community
together! I went to the first three. They were great!

Come on by our new location at Connolly's Pub,
Klub 45 in midtown. The theme this month is gratitude. What are you grateful
for? We want to know.

So what should you expect at Sunday Assembly? An hour that combines engaging
speakers and live band sing-a-longs. The music is like singing in the shower
with the oldies radio station on… but more people... and clothes.

The Sunday Assembly motto: live better, help often and wonder more. And the
Sunday Assembly monthly event is a distillation of that motto, our ...personal
journeys, and our collective hope to jump start us into the next month.

This month's on-stage guests include:

Main speaker: Faisal Saeed Al-Mutar is an Iraqi-born writer and activist
currently living in Texas. Founder of the Global Secular Humanist Movement,
Faisal has written for the likes of National Post, Big Think, and the Richard
Dawkins Foundation. His life story is one of struggle and danger and he has
turned it into a model of hope and inspiration. We are excited to welcome him
to the SA stage.

Second speaker: Justina Walford is the founder of Bare Naked Bake Sale, a team
of fundraisers with a risque, irreverent style. She is also working on a book,
Born to Be Bad in a Good Way, about ethics in an unwieldy moral landscape.

And to lead us through the Assembly is Erik Campano. Erik is former New York
local host of National Public Radio's All Things Considered and is currently
studying to become a doctor specializing in global health, particularly in the
developing world.

Sunday Assembly is a non-religious congregation celebrating life and everyone
is welcome, regardless of one’s religious beliefs or lack thereof. We embrace
all: atheists, nontheists, agnostics, non-believers, transtheists, spiritual
but not religious, anti-theists, skeptics, believers, humanists, secularists,
etc. We believe in good, so let’s work on good together.

    I don't recall now if it's 60 or 90 minutes long, sorry. There folks are going out to lunch afterward if they wish, so it's worth coming to even if you miss the beginning.

    Kam, each SA will have a different topic. If you like the SA idea, I'd encourage you to come and enjoy!

    I liked the "live better" and "wonder more"; I think I'll hit it another Sunday. Thanks for finding this!
