Special Event - Atheists to Address UCC Congregation on Evolution Sunday

Rick Wingrove, Stephanie Ragusky, and Larry Mendoza have been invited to address the congregation of St. James United Church of Christ in Lovettsville, VA.
St. James UCC is a very liberal, gay friendly congregation, headed by Don Prange. You may recall that Don supports us in our battle with LoCo Board of Supervisors over the christian lawn displays.
The event is part of Evolution Sunday - an annual event held by St. James to honor the birth of Charles Darwin.
The Service begins at 11:00.

    Not like any congregation I've ever seen - certainly not like the southern baptist church my mom made me go to as a child. After we spoke, we responded to questions and comments from attendees. They were curious, attentive, informed, and non-confrontational. No young earth creationists in this crowd. There were a number of first-timers who came because the Atheists were going to be there. A very positive experience and an essential part of the ongoing normalization through engagement process. It was truly a special event. Thanks to everyone who came out to support us.

    I had a blast. This was excellent. And I welcome my christian brothers and sisters to hang out with us at our meetups. :)

    Taraneh and Ava might join us, too. I've been meaning to come out to thank the pastor for his support, and this is a great excuse to do so.

    I'd better be there... and not the "head" of St. James... just a significant part of the body...
