Ending the Secular Church Search?
January 26, 2010
ABC has a new story on Greg Epstein, the Humanist chaplain at Harvard and an acquaintance of mine. Greg’s doing some really great stuff, including releasing an excellent book (“Good Without God“) and speaking at the Interfaith Youth Core conference this fall, and in the story he discusses the idea of establishing Secular Humanist congregations nationwide.
Personally, I’m all for it. In my WaPo op-ed, I discussed my desire to find a community of like-minded “nonbelievers” gathered around shared values and shared identity — something akin to what I experienced in my younger years as a Christian — and I think, with the right organizing, it is a legitimate possibility. What do you think? Let me know!
