Hi, all. Chris Stedman will be talking to the Concord Area Humanists tomorrow night at 7:00 about his recent book Faithiest: How an Atheist Found Common Ground with the Religious.We meet in Concord (MA) center. Details and directions here: http://www.meetup.com/concordareahumanists/events/100859912/. The description is copied below. All are very welcome.Maria<faitheist.jpeg>
Chris' thesis, that atheists and the religious can and should work together to foster greater understanding and to increase their positive impact on the world, is surprisingly controversial. "Hard core" atheists label him an accommodationist, while he believes that, "Toxic atheism drives people apart".
Chris is an atheist working to foster positive and productive dialogue and collaborative action between faith communities and the nonreligious. He writes for Huffington Post Gay Voices, Huffington Post Religion, The Washington Post On Faith, Religion Dispatches, and Relevant. He received his B.A. in Religion from Augsburg College and an M.A. in Religion from Meadville Lombard Theological School at the University of Chicago, for which he was awarded the Billings Prize for Most Outstanding Scholastic Achievement.
The meeting will start at 7:00 with socializing and a few announcements. The program will start at 7:15, after which we will have open discussion with the presenter followed by more socializing. At 9:00 we usually have an open steering committee meeting which anyone is invited to attend.
