Sunday Assemblies

A Sunday Assembly is a civic-social gathering on Sunday by non-religious people akin to a church service that has caught on as a movement in England and is spreading to the U.S.  I explored the concept with a group in Denver not long after I "came out" as an atheist, but ultimately wasn't convinced it was serving a useful purpose.  But, it would be interesting to see how the implementation is working in these groups.

I didn't cease to be a Christian because I had a problem with weekly gathering involving singing and story telling and sharing coffee cake and sometimes community organizing.
