The Program for This Sunday



Richard Carrier, a world-renowned author, professional historian, published philosopher, and prominent defender of the American freethought movement, speaks on Sunday, November 2nd, on "Proving History: Bayes's Theorem and the Quest for the Historical Jesus." Dr. Carrier will demonstrate that valid historical methods—not only in the study of Christian origins but in any historical study—can be described by, and reduced to, the logic of Bayes’s Theorem.

• Our Fiction Circle, led by Ken Novak and Sue Sherman, meets on Sunday, November 2nd, at 12:15 p.m. We’ll discuss Maria Semple’s Where’d You Go, Bernadette, a compulsive, satiric novel about misplaced genius and a mother’s and daughter’s role in an absurd 21st Century world.

He returns to perform ballads, love songs, satirical songs, songs from the Caribbean, Mexico, Ireland, England, France, Russia, Germany, and Nigeria, songs of the Sephardic Jews, and many songs from the good ole U. S. of A. The $8 donation includes refreshments.

Sunday School


This Sunday, November 2nd, we'll be  learning about the history of All Souls Day and the Day of the Dead. We will create an ofrenda to honor the memory of loved ones (pets, too) who are no longer living. Bring a photo of them and mementos of what they liked. We invite all members to participate.

Our Sunday School is open to children from birth through 8th grade. Join us as we explore the world and our place in it through discussions, play, crafts, and critical thinking. Newcomers welcome!
