Save the Date!

Join World Faith for our 2012 Annual Winter Gala! Celebrate an evening of food, fun and faitheism. This year, World Faith will be honoring Chris Stedman, author of the revolutionary book, Faitheist: How an Atheist Found Common Ground with the Religious. Don’t miss an evening of great drinks, food, and conversation!

Chris Stedman will be sharing his inspiring story of a former Evangelical Christian turned atheist who now works to bridge the divide between atheists and the religious. Unlike some of the atheists like Richard Dawkins and the late Christopher Hitchens who promote a vehement disdain for religion, in Faitheist, Stedman tells his own story to challenge the orthodoxies of this movement and make a passionate argument that atheists should engage religious diversity respectfully.

Along with a complimentary book, attendees will enjoy drinks, dinner, and entertainment. The benefit will be held Saturday, December 15th, at the NYU Center for Spiritual Life at 238 Thompson Street, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10012 . Cocktail hour and schmoozing begins at 5:30pm, followed by a sit down dinner at 6:30pm. Along with Stedman’s exciting and intimate story of Faitheist, guests will enjoy a multimedia presentation of World Faith, a community auction, and the chance to participate in a Q & A about World Faith’s work and how to get involved.

There are a limited number of seats so don’t miss out on this magical evening! RSVP by Wednesday, December 12th. If you are interested in booking a table, please reply with your group name/organization and how many seats you will require. Those reserving a table will receive group deals, so please inquire. Tickets are $50 and include drinks, dinner, and a complimentary book.  Purchase a ticket here by donating $50 with paypal.
