This month’s round table discussion topic is still TBA.

Our December round-table will start with a brief general meeting lasting about 30 minutes (7:00 – 7:30 pm). We have two specific items to address in this meeting:

1. Electing a new director to fill a vacancy. If you’d like to contribute to the direction of the SEA and help us organize events, please consider running for this position.

2. Voting on a proposal to increase the membership fee to $20/yr. effective January 1st, 2012. Memberships purchased in the last few months and until the end of the year (at $10) will be valid until the end of 2012.

You must be a member in good standing (that means you’ve purchased a membership for $10 this year) in order to vote. You may purchase a membership at the start of the meeting or online. Members may vote by proxy, provided that the Secretary is informed at least 48 hours in advance.

Round table discussion will start at or before 7:30 pm once our business is concluded .

The meeting continues informally at Elephant and Castle afterwards at 9:00 pm.

All are welcome to both events!

We will be revisiting the atheists in foxholes topic this month.

Religions are powerful institutions in society; so, too, are the military, especially the enormous US military might. Of concern over the past several years is that role that religion, especially the right-wing evangelical faith, plays within the US military. What is the proper role of religion in the military? Does a pro-Christian culture permeate the armed forces? Is the experience different in the Canadian Forces, or do we have similar concerns? Join us for a round table discussion on these issues and more at the Edmonton Public Library, one of our monthly series of subjects intended to provide for thoughtful discussions among our members and the public. All are welcome to attend. We look forward to seeing you and hearing your voice! As usual, the discussions will continue at the downtown Elephant & Castle pub once we leave the library.
