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.

    Reading Group: "How to Be an Antiracist" by Ibram X. Kendi
    Wednesday August 5 2020 at Online event

    As part of our commitment to anti-racism, let's read and discuss Ibram X. Kendi's book, "How to Be an Antiracist".

    This upcoming week's reading: Chapters 11 and 12. (This section will be updated each week, so check back if you need to.)

    Please make sure to actually do the reading! Please don't waste everyone else's time by asking for a recap of what you missed by not doing the reading.

    It's important that this discussion group be a safe, nonjudgmental space for anyone of any background to grapple with new and challenging ideas. This is necessary, in order to enable us to honestly examine ourselves and our actions, and consider in what ways we contribute to racism, or to the silence about racism, especially ones that we aren't even aware of. In the process, it's practically guaranteed that we will make clumsy, unskillful, or hurtful comments. That's OK. Those who feel up to it are encouraged to offer a positive, helpful corrective and constructive criticism, so that we can all learn and grow into better versions of ourselves, better neighbors and co-workers, and better members of the society we all share.

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

    Pomodoro on Purpose - Link is active Monday - Friday
    Monday August 10 2020 at Online event

    What is this? It is working side by side in silence over Zoom. Have you heard of the Pomodoro Technique? In order to increase productivity, you work for a short burst followed by a period of rest. You may work 90 minutes with a 30 minute break afterwards, or 25 minutes with a 5 minute break afterwards.

    Figure out what your purposeful action is - and take a baby step using the Pomodoro technique with us. Login exactly on time (no latecomers please) and leave your camera and video going beside you while you silently work. If you play music in the background- please mute your microphone.
