Lunch Discussion: "Leaving Religion"

Were you raised with religion? Were you a “believer?" Did you abruptly leave, or gradually transition away? Were you ever told you were having a “crisis of faith,” or must be “angry with God?" Did you believe that yourself at some time, or have fears about “what happens if you’re wrong?" What factors influenced you and changed your views? How did your family react? 

Led by guest moderator Paula Shea, these are some of the questions we will discuss in this difficult and personal topic. You may choose to share your story, or only listen and respond to others - whatever you are comfortable with doing. If you were raised without religion and always considered yourself an atheist/humanist, please still come and listen and share your perspective on the topic! This discussion is about empathy, understanding, and support to all who had a “journey to humanism.” 

Feel free to bring quotes to share from books, articles, or other resources that are related to this topic. 

As usual, you'll be able to join in on the shared pizza and salad (vegan pizza option available for both) for $6 cash, or you can order anything off the menu and pay with cash or credit. There is plenty of free street parking in the area. We look forward to seeing you there!
