Jefferson Center

For a while now, I’ve been an Honorary Fellow of The Jefferson Center in Ashland, Oregon. When I was first invited to speak there, I thought of it as an ultraliberal religious organization, and soon discovered that quite a few people associated with it were at least ambivalent about supernatural beliefs.

I got to know some of the very nice people involved with the Jefferson Center, particularly Robert Semes, its energetic Executive Director. He has a very interesting background, having spent much of his life as a priest. Recently, he publicly came out as a secular humanist. He will be coming out with a book soon, which should be fascinating.

Anyway, especially if you’re in Oregon or the northern end of California, do check out the Jefferson Center. They have some interesting programs, and you can always combine it with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland.
