NTCOF's September 2nd service featured guest speakers Rex Burks and Owen Younger who returned to present on "Countering The Five Christian Claims" that Christian doctrines are both true and beneficial. It was a good overview of why unbelievers are not persuaded by Christian claims and, in fact, find much to object to in them. More about the September service is HERE. Also read the September 2018 bulletin HERE for more on the general subject of the problem of supernaturalism.
NEXT MONTH, October 7th, will consider the 1692 New England Witch Hysteria, also known as the Salem Witch Trials, an important episode in American history as well as in the history of religious thought and legal practice. There is much more to this subject than many people realize and important lessons, especially, for Freethinkers. We will meet, as we have been, at the Comfort Inn DFW Airport North at 5000 West John Carpenter Freeway — Highway 114 — in Irving. See map/directions to the right!
Also, mark your calendars to attend the November 4th service at which we plan to hear from sociologist of religion Professor Christel J. Manning who will talk about her latest book on the subject of "The Nones," the growing demographic group of those who are, like us, unaffiliated with traditional religions. Again, more about that is at the FORUM entry on the September service HERE.
Join us for the October service! Come think with us about these and other subjects with the help of and in the company of people who share your same values of devotion to facts and reason! Bring your believing friends who might like to find out what atheists do at church! Have kids? Bring them too as we offer free childcare and "Sunday School" aimed at helping our younger Freethinkers cope with the challenges of growing up by learning to ask questions instead of just being spoon-fed "the answers." If they're too young for that — it is OK even to bring infants! — we'll look after and/or entertain them too. We want them to have fun! Children of all ages need to learn that Freethinking is exciting, important, and absolutely "normal." In fact, Freethought is extraordinary!
