unTapped Topic: Why Faith?
In the past 10-12 years, there has been an aggressive push against faith in God from a group of people that have been labeled the "New Atheists." People like Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, etc. have really started to take the gloves off in countering what they call superstition and irrationalism. (For a CNN article about the New Atheists, click here.)
Join us this Thursday at MOKA and tell us why you are a person of faith, or why you are not a person of faith. Why do you believe the way that you believe? What has brought you to the point of this belief? Faith is a subject that is very sensitive to personal perception and experience. So, the best way to understand it is for everyone to bring their own perceptions and experiences to share with the rest of the group.
We'll see you Thursday, 7pm at MOKA!
In order to live man must believe in that for which he lives.unTapped is a conversation about faith and spirituality. There are many people frustrated by being forced to think of faith in the same old patterns, and would prefer to explore spirituality in different ways.

Anything goes here. No matter where you are or who you are, we want to hear from you. Feel free to join in the conversation!
