The Forum at the Unitarian Universalist (UU) church in Park Forest went extremely well. 24 people attended, the fire code thing on the wall said the room maximum occupancy was 38. They said it was one of biggest attendances that they have had for their forums in a long while. Scott and I are currently planning to do a second forum. There was a lot of questions, and discussion, and several UU members stood up and stated that they were also atheists, agnostics, Wicca, Christians or others. Some of themes involved in questions were: what is positive atheism? Parenting? Is this a political group? What about atheists in the military? and many others.
