First Night of the Conference: Humanists and Religious Believers Gather Together

We completed the first night of our dialogue between atheists and theists. Chris Stedman, humanist and writer, and Fr. John Sivalon from the Catholic tradition, shared an evening of insights, concerns and dialogue with each other and the participants.

Chris, from his humanist perspective, and John from a Christian view, explained how vital it is in our pluralistic world to come together in dialogue. Humanists and religious believers both have something to contribute to each other and to the betterment of our world. They both gave an impassioned appeal why in our fragmented communities we cannot merely stand in our sacral or secular isolation. 

  Please feel free to offer your own questions, concerns and insights in the comments section of these posts or on our twitter feed in the side bar.
