Description:

Join us for an engaging panel discussion on the many facets of living life without religion. Topics will include: issues that arise as members of a nonreligious minority in a highly religious culture, questions that arise in discussions with family and/or religious people, responses to common objections, real world experiences of people who have been religious for sometime and are now nonreligious, and more.

The Panelists are active members of CFI Michigan. Each panelist has a unique perspective based on their own religious/nonreligious upbringing and they all serve in leadership roles within CFI Michigan – on our Advisory Board, leading our Living Without Religion Support Group, as a Campus Group leader and on our Secular Service Committee.

Meetings are open to the Public. A moderated discussion will follow the lecture.

After the meeting, join us at Vitale’s Restaurant, 834 Leonard NE, Grand Rapids, MI to socialize. View Map
