Atheist at a Megachurch

This Wednesday night, I’ll be speaking at Kensington Community Church (Troy Campus) in Troy, Michigan (just outside Detroit) about my church-going experiences. The plan is for the pastor to interview me — we’ll discuss what I discovered at churches across the country and my own experiences dealing with Christians as an atheist.

If you’re in the area, it’d be great to have some like-minded support :) There’s a book-signing afterwards, too!

More information is here. The event begins at 7:00 p.m.

If you live within a 398423-mile radius, you better be there.

However, if you miss it, audio should be available shortly afterwards.

    Okay, Hemant, come clean. A few posts back you asked, “Would Your Friends Stay if You Converted?” Now you’re going to church. Anything you’d like to tell us?

    Stranger in a foreign land much?

    I won’t be there but be sure to pick up some of the brochures and pamphlets in the entrance hall.

    haha, my friend (who happens to work at Kensington) called me when she found out that you’re coming to speak there. She said that when she heard, she said (audibly), my friend knows him! Haha…I guess you can say I did my share of advertising for your book. :-)

    So if you meet Jenny and Justin, tell them I say, “Hello.” :-)

    p.s. How are you going to get back to work on Thursday? Or are you playing hookie?

    Is it available to heretics who don’t use iTunes?

    Will do :) And I took a personal day on Thursday from work.

    It will be!

    Yay, you’re finally going to be in Michigan! I’ll be there, and hopefully meet you afterwards :-)

    Oh, Gosh darnit! For once I have an excellent reason to go to church and can’t make it because I work. I actually live across the street from Troy and know that church very well. Good news is I’m a paramedic and one of our coverage areas is Troy so all you have to do is make a call to 911 and request an ambulance there and I’ll come running! Of course I don’t recommend anyone prank calling 911 so you may actually have to trip someone or something. Well I hope you enjoy the area, Troy is a beautiful city. Maybe you’d think about a Meet and Greet afterward (I get off at 9 *hint hint*).

    I really, really want to make it. I work in Troy as well. Unfortunately, being a single parent might keep me from attending. I’d bring my 5 year old son, but I doubt he’d have the patience :D

    Just down the freeway from my hometown! Enjoy yourself off of I-75′s Exit 69, Big Beaver Road (no I am not making that up!)
