Reminder: Upcoming Events

Tonight at 7:00 p.m., I will be at Willow Creek Community Church for their mid-week New Community service. Willow Creek is one of the largest churches in the country, as well as the most influential.

I will be joining Pastor Randy Frazee for his sermon– it will be an interview/discussion about the book, atheism, etc. This event is free, so if you’re in the South Barrington, Illinois area, come on down (even if you’re an atheist)! I believe the event will be streamed online that night… if not live, then shortly after. There will be a book signing afterward.

Also, for those in the Albany, NY area, I will be doing a reading/signing at The Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza on Sunday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. (EDT).

If you come to either event, please say hello before taking off!

    Hey, have you been to Albany before? I don’t know how long you’re gonna be in the area, but let me know if you’re wondering what’s worth doing. I used to live there, and am still really fond of the town. Consider me your remote ambassador. Shoot me a line at my posting-handle @gmail.com.

    Man, I wish I were still in the area. You’ll have to swing through Pittsburgh at some point.

    I was in attendence last night at Willow. I thought your views were very interesting, but it seemed like the interview was staged. Were you asked to only talk about the specific questions asked? I felt like I only got to see the G rated version last night.

    Shannon– Hi! The interview was “staged” only in the sense that Randy told me the topics he wanted to discuss. For example, I knew he would be asking me about the good and bad things I saw at churches. He didn’t know how I would answer the questions, and most of the dialogue was improvised.

    Since there was limited time on stage, we kept the discussion to those topics and very little else. You said you felt like you saw the G-rated version. What did you think was missing? :)

    I’m planning on being there in Albany; I’d love to meet you. Probably some other members of our meetup group will be there too.

    If you are coming to Albany the day before you could even join us out at the track !!

    Hey Hemant, I saw your interview yesterday at Willow Creek. I thought your views were really helpful and I felt convicted by some of the statements that you made. Thanks for having the courage to come and talk.
