How does one go about questioning faith, religion, spirituality, and the existence of a god, gods, or a "God?" What are some issues with the idea of a "God?" Why do you or don't you believe? What is necessary for the belief in a "God?" Who/what is God? Where can I find resources to taking steps to finding answers to these questions? Where can I find an inclusive support group that allows for such questioning and open-ended responses? Open dialogue, snacks, networking and resources available. Open to everyone no matter what spiritual background (including none). O'Connor Commons, Friday, October 19, 2017, 8:15-9:15 p.m.
