The Fellowship of Reason (FOR) is looking for new members who enjoy performance (teaching/public speaking) and who have true passions in life which they would like to share with us. Non-performing members are most welcome, too. Someone has called us the Nerd Church because of our interest in music, art, theater, dance, history, culture, religion, philosophy, science, and history.

FOR was founded in Atlanta, GA in 1998 as a non-profit organization to provide fellowship, ethical education, and continuing classical education for thoughtful people, young and old. We welcome individuals and families, offering family-friendly activities. Activities include inspirational, social, educational, and recreational outings. Families and children are especially important to us. There's something for everyone!

FOR offers
*a reason-based approach to life
*social events and opportunities
*adult learning activities and book clubs
*study of aesthetics, ethics, and philosophy
*support in living reflectively and with purpose
*recognition of life events

FOR is a reason-based moral community. Our guiding question is: "What is the beautiful thing to do?"

All social and educational events are free and open to all visitors. As a non-profit, FOR is a member-supported organization. To learn more about FOR and how to join, visit our website at http://www.fellowshipofreason.com/

Poetry Group

San Francisco Coffee Roasting Co.

THIS MONTH: Robert Fitzgerald DESCRIPTION: Poetry: Is it all Rainbows and Butterflies and My Little Pony? Fellowship of Reason Poetry Group has for a few years now embarked on a special project. In the continuing years, we will go through all the US Poets Laureate in sequence, approximately one per month, from the earliest (Joseph Auslander, 1937—not familiar with him? that’s part of the project) to recently reappointed Tracy K. Smith, or whoever is current whenever we finish. We're using The Poets Laureate Anthology, which contains short portraits and samples of the works of the first 43 US Poets Laureate, as a starting point. And we will of course go beyond the Anthology for more poems and historical and biographical information, and whatever else we deem pertinent, or for that matter damned impertinent. There will be flexibility in our schedule to pause for other presentations. But we will afterward return to our previously scheduled program, interrupted but uncut. Like all poets, US Poets Laureate belong to the world, but they belong to Americans in a special way, because of their service in that odd and erratic, undefined and ill-remunerative office. Shouldn’t we know them? Shouldn’t we become more familiar with this particular and peculiar strain of our cultural heritage? If you have a free afternoon the fourth (usually) Saturday of the month, why not come join us for rainbows, butterflies and a little cup of SFCRC coffee?
