Welcome atheists, agnostics, skeptics — you are all welcome here! At Seattle Atheist Church, we call ourselves an atheist church because you will never hear anything supernatural promoted from the podium.

Join us for our Sunday Service each and every week in Seattle.

    Online Service: Slippery Slopes and Schelling Fences
    Sunday May 22 2022 at

    When there's not a clear place to draw a line, sometimes it's important to draw one anyway. This talk describes the concept of Schelling Fences, which can stop slides down a metaphorical slippery slope.

    This week's speaker will be Mickey.

    After the talk, we'll have a group discussion to explore the ideas presented, and to share related thoughts, resources, and personal experiences.

    This is an online event hosted on Zoom. You can register for it here:

    Secular Social
    Saturday May 28 2022 at

    Please join us for our in-person Secular Social!

    We will be meeting at **Chucks Hop Shop** in the **Central District**. Lots of amazing beers and ciders to try. This venue is kid and dog friendly. Food is not served but they usually have a food truck on site, plus Tacos Chukis is 2 blocks away (you are able to bring outside food). There is only street parking, so if you are able to take public transit, that is best (bus 48 and 2 are nearby).

    I look forward to seeing everyone there!

    Sunday Morning Stoicism
    Sunday May 29 2022 at

    Let's get together before church and discuss this week's passages from The Daily Stoic! Each day of the year has a corresponding "devotional reading" (so to speak). Each week, let's discuss the readings since our previous meeting, from the previous Monday through the Sunday of the meeting, and share what resonated with us, what we found profound, and what insights we can apply to what's going on in our lives.

    Each reading is about 3 minutes long. They're all self-contained, so you don't need to worry about catching up - feel free to jump in on any week's session!

    This is an online event hosted on Zoom. You can register for it here:
    https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJIqf-2spzwoHNYJkpUJHobrD14SqEGfky0Y

    We'll end at 11:30 to give folks time to grab some food and freshen up before the Sunday Service.

    You can grab a copy of the book from your favorite local bookstore or order on Amazon here:
    https://www.amazon.com/Daily-Stoic-Meditations-Wisdom-Perseverance-ebook/dp/B01HNJIJB2/

    Here's Amazon's blurb about the book:

    "Why have history's greatest minds—from George Washington to Frederick the Great to Ralph Waldo Emerson, along with today's top performers from Super Bowl-winning football coaches to CEOs and celebrities—embraced the wisdom of the ancient Stoics? Because they realize that the most valuable wisdom is timeless and that philosophy is for living a better life, not a classroom exercise.

    "The Daily Stoic offers 366 days of Stoic insights and exercises, featuring all-new translations from the Emperor Marcus Aurelius, the playwright Seneca, or slave-turned-philosopher Epictetus, as well as lesser-known luminaries like Zeno, Cleanthes, and Musonius Rufus. Every day of the year you'll find one of their pithy, powerful quotations, as well as historical anecdotes, provocative commentary, and a helpful glossary of Greek terms.

    "By following these teachings over the course of a year (and, indeed, for years to come) you'll find the serenity, self-knowledge, and resilience you need to live well."
