Yeah, it sounds like a great idea. Sometimes it would be nice to talk about religion and kind of get my lack of beliefs out in the open, but there never seems to be a reason to bring it up unless someone invites me to church or something. But something like this just provides an excuse to have a conversation on the subject.

David - I know exactly what you mean!  I found out about two days in to the week and I was like, how on earth was I not aware of this event?


A Week took some criticisms, many that participated felt that the "A" was too vague and just opened more questions than answers - but I thought people asking questions helped open a dialogue...

How come I was not notified of this? I think I'll go ahead and change my Facebook image and declare this week to be "A" Week. All my friends are probably just as out of the loop as I am.
