What is your reaction when someone says, “I’ll pray for you”? Is there a phrase you use in place of “I’ll pray for you”? Do you think you have a responsibility as an atheist to respond in any particular way when someone says this to you? Do you have the same reaction to this phrase as you do to “God bless you”? Are there any phrases you think/say that include a religious reference, e.g., “Oh my god!” or “Jesus H. Christ!” or “Hallelujah!” or “Holy s&#t!”?
Suggestions for future pre-meeting discussions – I’m getting to the end of my list of topics for these pre-meetings discussions. If you have any ideas for future topics, please bring them to this discussion. I’ll bring a list of the topics that have been addressed going back to Feb. 2016.
Please remember to respect each others’ opinions and feelings, and always help to ensure everyone’s voice is heard.
Note: the discussion begins at 6:15 and will take place at tables in the back of the meeting room prior to the main event of the evening. If you are getting dinner or drinks at Harry’s to enjoy during the discussion, please allow enough time to make your purchases before 6:15.
