Godless church opens at Cambridge

An hour long service on Sundays with music, announcements, and a message.

But no God.

That’s what’s happening at Harvard’s new Humanist Community.

It’s headed by Harvard’s Humanist chaplain.

(Yes, they have a humanist ‘chaplain’).

It’s his way of building community.

They even us the word ‘congregation’:

“We decided recently that we want to use the word congregation more and more often because that is a word that strongly evokes a certain kind of community – a really close knit, strong community that can make strong change happen in the world.”

And ex-pastor Jerry DeWitt has opened an atheist church called Community Mission Chapel in Baton Rouge.

“When you become a part of this congregation, this community, you are going to become part of a family,” DeWitt told CNN. “There is an infrastructure there for you to land in. There is going to be someone there to do weddings and to do, unfortunately, the funerals.”

    I guess it may be a good place to meet women. A couch and TV seems to make a good Godless church.
