FIRST UP: We'll have a couple of FIVE MINUTE SPEECHES from attending members on absolutely any subject whatsoever! Come ready to offer up some pearls of your wisdom on whatever subject you like. We've even had a short singing/spoons performance. We'll have a stopwatch working so they are ONLY five minutes. The speaker can take questions after or not. Don't be shy. These are really fun and memorable. Some examples we've heard:
1. Memory Tricks that work.
2. How to hire a pet sitter.
3. Why cursive should still be taught in schools.
4. The importance of attachment in a family.
5. How important are grandparents?
6. How to recognize a gifted child.
7. Living on minimum wage.
8. Vegan vs. vegetarian
9. Sunshine vs sunscreen.
10. Mindfulness vs meditation.
11. Historical lies
12. The best age to get married.
13. Why you didn't marry the right person.

NEXT UP: David G. McAfee, a journalist and author of No Sacred Cows: Investigating Myths, Cults, and the Supernatural, writes about science, skepticism, and faith for his No Sacred Cows blog on the Patheos network. He attended the University of California, Santa Barbara, and graduated with bachelor’s degrees in English and Religious Studies with an emphasis on Christianity and Mediterranean religions. McAfee's other books include: Disproving Christianity, Mom, Dad, I'm an Atheist, The Belief Book, The Book of Gods, The Book of Religions, and Atheist Answers.

Come hear David speak on, "LEARNING ABOUT BELIEFS, GODS, AND RELIGIONS". In the talk, he will be primarily focused on The Belief Good, The Bood of Religions, and The Bood of Gods. Hi will be using images and excerpts from these books, which are primarily for children even though the information is targeted for adults at his talk so it will be interesting for people of all ages so bring the kiddos! He worked with artist Chuck Harrison to distill what he learned studying religion in college for kids and anyone else. He will talk about curiosity, asking questions, why it's important to know about religion and more.

The program will start at 2:30 so come early at 2 PM and help your friends set up. Early dinner at Sizzler afterward.
