The Be Secular Conversation Series - "Common Ground Activism" Mark Sandlin/Jerry DeWitt
Be Secular is happy to sponsor the first ever Be Secular Conversation Series Event.

"Common Ground Activism" - An atheist and a minister discuss interfaith partnerships hosted by Johns Hopkins University.

January 11, 2014 1-4PM

Join us for an afternoon of discussion, laughs, insight and progress with progressive Presbyterian Minister, Huffington Post blogger, and co-founder of The Christian Left, Mark Sandlin, and former Pentecostal Minster turned secular humanist and atheist, Jerry DeWitt.

Mark and Jerry will discuss issues ranging from progress in the fight for LGBT equality, women's reproductive rights, the separation of church and state, creationism in schools and more.

Mark Sandlin currently serves as the minister at Vandalia Presbyterian Church in Greensboro, NC. He received his M. Div. from Wake Forest University's School of Divinity and has undergraduate degrees in Business Administration and English  with a minor in Computer Science. He is an ordained minister in the PC(USA), a self-described
progressive and the Co-Founder of The Christian Left and the popular blog The God Article.  

Jerry DeWitt is an American author and public speaker, and a prominent member of the American atheism movement. He is a former pastor of two Pentecostal churches, who publicly deconverted to atheism in 2011. Jerry recently became the Vice President of Dogma Debate LLC, host of the popular radio show Dogama Debate with David Smalley.

Following the 90 minute discussion and a question and answer session, there will be a book signing and meet and greet. There will be a VIP social with a cash bar following the event for those who purchase Gold and Silver tickets.

Gold tickets will include seating in the front two rows, a signed copy of Jerry's book "Hope After Faith", a Be Secular T-Shirt and access to the VIP social after the books signing.
