I addressed a gathering of Atheists in San Francisco yesterday. Some good conversation and questions were tossed around. Afterward some of us met at a local pub and continued talking over fish tacos, soup and brew. Near the end I asked the group what each did in their work. Around the table we had:
-Web Designer/Humanist Celebrant
-College Teacher/Senior Housing Manager
My comment was that we ought to make this known in our area. People need to learn that non-religious people are contributing to our communities every day in many ways.
Who is contributing in your community?
And ultimately I would ask: Does it matter if those doing good, important work that benefits all of us are believers or non-believers?
