Regular Reason Events

Darwin Day

Each year we celebrate Darwin Day and the Hub’s birthday! This year we had Professor Jeff Mitton an evolutionary biologist come and speak to us about advances in the science of Evolutionary Biology. Then cake and a meet and greet with the speaker.

Free Thinkers in AA

A 12-Step support group meeting for those struggling with religious beliefs, the idea of a god, or of a higher power someplace “out there”  expressed in most AA meetings. Our goal is to recover a healthy, non-theistic understanding of the 12-Step process, enabling the individual to find the power for change within himself or herself.  RSVP at Meetup.com

Bi-Weekly Meditation Meet-up

Reasons begin with a clear mind.  Want a group where your fellow meditators won’t ask you what your horoscope sign is? This group may be for you. We meet every other Wednesday to explore the world of meditation. Whatever your experience level is, all are welcome. And nothing religious or supernatural will be discussed. So join us for meditation and social connection!

Remember meditation may stir up strong emotions such as crying, and these should be met with complete approval of whomever’s experiencing them. They may want space, or comfort, or something else. Whatever the case, all reactions are equally valid.

P.S. To keep up with the small cost of running this event, there’s a suggested donation of $1-$5.  RSVP @ Meetup.com

“One good schoolmaster is of more use than a hundred priests.”
Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason

Speakers on topics ranging from social justice to climate science have stimulated thought and dialog at the Hub. But whether the event is hosted at the Hub or elsewhere, if it is of particular interest to the secular community, you can likely find it on the community calendar on our home page.
What do Facebook and our weekly Coffee & Community event have in common? They’re great venues for continuing discussion following educational events or for discussing current events and other topics of interest.
The Hub is also a place where like-minded people can get together to organize action in support of the secular causes that matter most to them, be it organizing a park clean-up or planning a response to a violation of the 1st amendment.

Rarely, but once in a while articles are written in the mainstream media about a subject dear to our hearts:  Atheism, Secularism, etc.
The Washington Post wrote an article about the numbers of self acknowledged atheists in Congress:  All none of them.  It is an amusing article.   You can read it here:
