Greetings, friends! I hope that this finds you well. Though I have continued to do speaking engagements and interviews with media, this section of the site has fallen a bit behind recently. My apologies for the lack of updates but I have been quite busy this year with my roles at Harvard and now Yale Universities, and other projects. I hope to post some new updates soon -- but in the meantime I wanted to share the details for my upcoming UK tour, including an event in London with the BHA and 3FF, in Belfast with the BBC's William Crawley, and a conference with the Scottish Parliament. I hope to see you at one of these events! (And for more regular updates, please check out my Facebook and Twitter.)
London: Tuesday, 5 November 2013
In partnership with the British Humanist Association, Theos, AHS, and the Radical Middle Way, Three Faiths Forum invites you a dialogue with Chris Stedman, humanist interfaith activist and author of Faitheist, who will speak on the topic of including the non-religious in interfaith. Chris Stedman advocates outreach to seek "common moral ground between theists and atheists", and proposes achieving that aim by expanding interfaith dialogue to include atheists. His presentation will be followed by responses from the AHS, Radical Middle Way, and Theos. Registration for the event is free, but we invite guests to make a £3 voluntary donation on the night to help us cover costs. Click here to register for this event!
