  • Sean O’Brien's "Portable Poe"
    Note: Doors open at noon. Presentation begins at 1:00. Due to popular demand, we'll be asking actor Sean O'Brien to show us his "Portable Poe." You like chills? O'Brien will provide a few for you. Word on the street says this is a stunning portrayal, so those who are reluctant to subject themselves to voluntary discomfort can find respite in the Reason Center library with a light-hearted flip-through of Far Side cartoon books with scaredy-cat event organizer Susan. Sean O’Brien started on the stage in rural Connecticut when he was 14 and has been acting, directing, and teaching theater ever since in New York, Virginia, Montana, and California. Since retiring from teaching, Sean has been performing in schools and theaters around the Sacramento region. “Bob: The Words of Col. Robert Green Ingersoll" is the newest addition to Sean’s growing production company, Every Corner Productions. He is presently working on two more one-man shows (William Shakespeare and Mark Twain) for presentation in the schools. Are you looking for a way to meet people and build a friendship or two?Want to help out? We really, really need people to greet people as they arrive and say goodbye when they leave. You'll probably learn the names of a lot of people and--bonus!--you'll become a popular and familiar face to everyone around here! Remember to bring a few bucks if you can to help pay for renting Reason Center. Find the big plastic donation jug (labeled "Reason Center Donations") and stuff your bucks in there. Even humble SacFAN has to pay to use Reason Center. Even if you can't afford it, come anyway. The important thing is for you to be there so you can meet your new friends. Friendships take time to build, and this is truly a wonderful group of people. Reason Center's expenses (rent, electricity, maintenance, security, insurance) aren't especially heartwarming, but they're the infrastructure that makes SacFAN, AOF, Sunday Assembly Sacramento, and others thrive. Reason Center is the ONLY venue in the region dedicated to freethought, agnosticism, non-theism, rationality, skepticism, atheism, Humanism, and other flavors of non-religiosity. It's open for you and any friends you'd like to bring, so to continue Reason Center's success, donate as generously as you can. All donations are very much appreciated, and since Reason Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, all donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by IRS regulations. Visit: http://www.reasoncenter.org Atheists and Other Freethinkers (AOF) is the 501(c)(3) nonprofit that supports, among other things, SacFAN's Speaker Series, which is what you've enjoyed for the last few years at these monthly AOF/SacFAN general meetings. We meet on the last Sunday of each month at Reason Center. AOF membership forms are at Reason Center and online. Memberships are: $10/year for low-income individuals, $20/year for non-low-income individuals, $30/year for families, and $50/year for the Patron level membership.

  • Movie Night at Reason Center
    Reason Center and AOF (Atheists and Other Freethinkers) co-sponsor a movie night two Fridays each month. Reason Center has a big screen and sound system. We have chairs, but they're not great for 2 hours of movie watching so we recommend you bring a comfy lawn chair, blankets, and pillows. You can also bring your own dinner and drinks to enjoy in addition to our complimentary theater popcorn. Our movie nights are free for Reason Center members, which starts at only $5/month and supports other activities for our local freethought community. If you would like to become a member sign up here: http://reasoncenter.org Did you notice we didn't say the name of the movie? Unfortunately the type of discounted movie license we have doesn't allow us to share the name of the movie. But you can become a Reason Center member to find out, or sometimes we include a hint in the comments. :)

  • Blasphemy Breakfast - Rocklin
    Do you like to hang out with local like-minded people? Want a chance to get to know FANs in smaller groups? Or do you just get hungry on Sunday mornings? JOIN US at Mel's Diner for what we call our "Blasphemy Breakfast", not that we blaspheme that much, but atheist-related topics are known to come up at times. This is a great event to start with, if you haven't been to SacFAN Meetup events before. Also a great group of people to answer any atheist questions you might have, help you learn more about all the freethinking goings-on in the region, or help you any way we can. It's always a breath of fresh air to have brunch with like-minded friends. And we'll surely be friends once we've met you. I recommend their malts, omelets, biscuits n gravy, and grilled cheese. It's all good. And everyone's friendly here. Similar Blasphemy Brunches are held in other areas around Sacramento. Check the SacFAN calendar for their details. Also, you can subscribe to Sacramento Reason, the free, online monthly newsletter, at http://www.sacramentoreason.org , to see more details and info.

Don Fox and Steve Thoreson are facilitating this meet up to review the history of Rome, religions of the Roman empire, Gnosticism, Mystery cults, history of Christian persecutions, biographies of major Christians, the history of the Bible and many other related topics. If you ever wanted to sort out Eusebius from Clement, or Constantine from Diocletian, or the Vulgate from the Septuagint, then this group is for you. Previous biblical knowledge is not required to participate. We will be meeting every third Sunday. Each meeting a specific topic will be covered.

  • Rapid Friending--Without Facebook
    Note: Doors open at noon. Event begins at 1:00. How about some real friends? People you can actually talk with and go places with? This is not speed dating but rather an innocent, respectful way of finding people you might want to be friends with. It's tough in California. People are generally afraid of getting acquainted with their neighbors, or maybe just too shy to speak. Here's your chance to break through that glass wall. We'll give you a sheet of questions to choose from and you'll have several minutes to chat with someone---hear their story and you can tell them your story. Then we'll all change conversation partners and do it again. The format is the same as speed dating but without the burden of potential romance. Give this a try. Would you like to get acquainted with even more nonbelievers? Be the greeter at the monthly SacFAN/AOF meeting. You'll have adhesive name badges and a marker, and as people come through the door, you'll have a legitimate reason to say, "Hi, I'm _______. What's your name?" Then you write the person's name on the tag. Soon, you know more people and more people know you. Those name tags are a very welcome memory aid to a lot of people. Haven't you ever struggled to remember somebody's name? Fred Rogers---yes, THE Mr. Rogers---said it's important when people arrive and it's important when people leave. That's why well mannered people strive to greet arrivals, and later give them a warm send-off. You’ve done this before, so you already know how good it feels to help people feel good. You've known this since you were a kid, and here's an opportunity to practice and maybe even teach somebody how to do it. Are you in? Yes? Then tell Susan (the one who introduces the speakers) that you'd like to help welcome people as they arrive for the meeting. Bring a few bucks if you can to help pay for renting the Reason Center. Find the big plastic donation jug labeled "Reason Center Donations" (it'll be at the snack table) and stuff your bucks in there. Even humble SacFAN has to pay to use Reason Center. If you can't donate, come anyway. The important thing is for you to be there so you can meet your new friends. This is truly a wonderful group of people.
