Join MMAH for their event featuring our very own Robert Collins,whose talk will be Back in Time: You Are 17 Years Old Again!
Dr. Collins will share his 8 years of experience of being invited in to address a World Religions Course at Grand Haven High School. He will be presenting much as he does in the classroom:
You hear that an atheist is coming to address your class on World Religions. How doyou and your peers react to this news? What will you tell your parents (or not)? What will you say to your boy/girl friend? Is atheism just another religion? Is this a Christian nation? What happens when you die? Is there no soul or chance for immortality? How can you be moral without God? Aren’t you afraid of hell and losing the bet? Should we have such courses in more high schools?
Dinner and Socializing will be from 5 to 6:15 PM. Program will start at 6:30 PM.
RSVP appreciated by email and/or on the Meetup website to provide an approximate headcount.
A Q&A period will follow in which the audience can engage Dr. Collins in further conversation.
